All work and no play make Jack a dull boy…All work and no play make Jack a dull boy…in Stanley Kubrick’s THE SHINING.
Get cabin fever this winter at Nitehawk! Stanley Kubrick’s filmic version of Stephen King’s novel The Shining is the most beautiful mash up of terror that includes architecture, madness, a time/space collapse, and surreal imagery. The Shining takes place essentially in one place, The Overlook Hotel, that Jack Torrance (starring Here’s Johnny! Jack Nicholson) shares with his wife and psychic son as caretakers for the winter. It doesn’t take long for the hotel to consume his thoughts and propel him to do the unthinkable…murder his family.
The Nitehawk Cinema is located at 136 Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11249. The website is www.nitehawkcinema.com
