We round off The Luminaries: Stanley Kubrick season with a special Halloween screening of one of the greatest horror movies of all time: The Shining.
All work and no play makes Oscar-winning actor Jack Nicholson-the caretaker of an isolated resort-go way off the deep end, terrorizing his young son and wife (Shelley Duvall).
Nicholson plays Jack Torrance, who's come to the elegant, isolated Overlook Hotel as off-season caretaker. Torrance has never been there before-or has he? The answer lies in a ghostly time warp of madness and murder.
Master filmmaker Stanley Kubrick's visually haunting chiller, based on the bestseller by master-of-suspense Stephen King, is an undeniable contemporary classic, full of indelible images, and a signature role for Nicholson whose character was selected by AFI as one of their 50 Greatest Villains.
Please note all these screenings will start at the advertised time with no ads or trailers.
