THE SHiNiNG

Array

“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”

Join us at the Rio Theatre on Wednesday, December 29 for an encore screening of Stanley Kubrick‘s indelible horror classic THE SHiNiNG. Come play with us!

Based on Stephen King‘s 1977 novel The Shining, Stanley Kubrick‘s film is widely regarded as a work of true cinematic genius (although King himself, famously, does not).  Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall star as a husband and wife (Jack and Wendy Torrance) who ditch the city for a gig as winter caretakers at an isolated hotel. While Jack hopes to get his creative juices flowing so that he can write a book, the family (which also includes their young son Danny) instead encounters an eerie and foreboding spiritual presence. Commence cinema’s most nightmarishly creepy twins, a mesmerizing carpet, the memorable view from Room 237, a messy elevator, REDRUM, psychic visions, a Big Wheel that keeps on turnin’, and a chaotic descent into a spiraling maze of violence. This new 4K restoration will be best enjoyed on the big screen (and with our bigger sound!). Also starring Danny Lloyd and Scatman Crothers.

This particular edition of THE SHiNiNG was remastered in 2019 for the film’s 40th Anniversary, using a new 4K scan of the original 35mm camera negative at Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging. The color grading was done by Janet Wilson with supervision from Kubrick’s former personal assistant, Leon Vitali.)

“Ostensibly a haunted house story, it manages to traverse a complex world of incipient madness, spectral murder and supernatural visions… and also makes you jump.” (Empire Magazine)

He settles in along with his wife, Wendy, and his son, Danny (Danny Lloyd), who is plagued by psychic premonitions. As Jack’s writing goes nowhere and Danny’s visions become more disturbing, Jack discovers the hotel’s dark secrets and begins to unravel into a homicidal maniac hell-bent on terrorizing his family.
