“Kubrick has made a movie that will have to be reckoned with on the highest level.”
—Richard Schickel

“As has become increasingly evident over time, THE SHINING is much more than a simple horror film (or even than the ‘ultimate experiment’ in fear). It is a dark comedy, a family drama, and an early instantiation of the ‘mind game’ film.”
—Senses of Cinema

Kubrick’s symphony of terror is a completely unique theatrical experience. We are accustomed to horror movies with a lot of atmosphere and with shocking jump scares, but when a cinematic master turns his hand to these techniques they become something more like high art. Come see it with us on the big screen and appreciate the performances of Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, and company as the peerless spell cast by Stanley Kubrick works its grim magic down your spine.
