The Shining

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

All work and no play makes blocked novelist cum hotel caretaker Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) a raging, murderous psychopath in Kubrick’s mordantly funny, genuinely terrifying riff on Stephen King’s bestselling novel–one that King himself disavowed, for so far did it stray from his decidedly more literal, straightforward text. But is it also…a film about how Kubrick helped the U.S. government fake the moon landing? Or about the holocaust? After you’ve seen Room 237 Friday night, you’ll want to return to the original in this sparkling new DCP print to find out! Or maybe just for the good time the film always was in a dazzling new form….R. 146 Min.
