Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Warner Bros. Entertainment invite you to relive Stanley Kubrickâs masterpiece of modern horror, The Shining (1980), when it returns to cinemas nationwide for a special two-day event on Sunday, October 23 and Wednesday, October 26. From a script he co-adapted from the Stephen King novel, director Stanley Kubrick melds vivid performances, menacing settings, dreamlike tracking shots and shock after shock into a milestone macabre. In a signature role, Jack Nicholson (âHeeeereâs Johnny!â) plays Jack Torrance, whoâs come to the elegant, isolated Overlook Hotel, as the off-season caretaker with his wife (Shelley Duvall) and son (Danny Lloyd). Torrance has never been there before - or has he? The answer lies in a ghostly time warp of madness and murder. The Shining Â©1980, Â©2016 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. All rights reserved.
