From the great master filmmaker Stanley Kubrick comes one of the most infamous horror movies of all time. Adapted loosely from the novel by Stephen King, Jack Nicholson stars as Jack Torrance, who takes a job taking care of the isolated Overlook Hotel while it suspends operations over the winter. A perfect chance for him to focus on writing his next book and spend quality time with his wife (played by a brilliant Shelley Duvall) and son... Except that all work and no play make Jack a dull boy. Enigmatic and chilling, The Shining is a masterpiece that never loses its power.
KUBRICK DOUBLE BILL:
