Stanley Kubrick's The Shining Returns to Theaters for Halloween
"Heeeere's Johnny!" The Shining is back on the big screen just in time for Halloween. Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Warner Bros. Entertainment invite you to relive Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece of modern horror. The 1980classic returns to cinemas nationwide for a special two-day event this October.
The special The Shining screenings are part of Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies' TCM Big Screen Classics series. "TCM Big Screen Classics: The Shining" will screen Sunday, October 23 and Wednesday, October 26 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. local time (both days). They will include exclusive commentary by Turner Classic Movies host Ben Mankiewicz.
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 macabre milestone. In a signature role, Jack Nicholson plays Jack Torrance, who's 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.

To get you pumped for this upcoming Halloween release, we have the original trailer from The Shining. The movie was released in 1980 to critical acclaim, where it pulled in $44 million from a $19 million budget. At the time, it wasn't an immediate hit with fans but it has grown over the years to become considered one of the greatest horror movies of all time. Now, you can relive all the terror on the big screen just in time for everyone's favorite Fall holiday. And it should be especially prophetic with the Shining prequel he Overlook Hotel coming soon.
