SCREENING

The Shining

Ongoing

Dir. Stanley Kubrick. 1980, 144 mins. 35mm. With Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd. Rivers of blood spew from an elevator. The ghosts of two girls beckon in a hallway. An axe blasts through a bathroom wall to get at the terrified woman inside. With one macabre image after another, Kubrick’s adaptation of Stephen King’s tale of a caretaker driven mad in a cavernous hotel during an isolated Colorado winter is a landmark of art horror. A visionary child is pitted against a murderous father, but the real protagonist of Kubrick’s horror masterpiece is the haunted resort hotel.
