A few weeks after THE SHINING's original US release in 1980, the director cut several minutes from the ending, and then cut a further half-hour from the film for its European release. This screening is a rare opportunity to see the complete 144-minute version of the film on the big screen, including a number of deleted scenes and an unexpected coda.
Previews on Wednesday 31 October, and also showing from 2 November at selected cinemas
Director: Stanley Kubrick. Starring: Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd. UK/USA 1980. 144 mins.
Struggling author Jack (Nicholson) is installed as winter caretaker in an empty, snowbound hotel in the company of his wife Wendy (Duvall) and psychically gifted son Danny (Lloyd). But the hotel has a grim history, and as its dark soul begins to possess Jack, Danny too becomes enmeshed in its terrors. Based on the novel by Stephen King, Kubrick's superb essay on fluorescent-lit horror, with its combination of bleak comedy, creepy atmosphere and sumptuously horrible visuals, was an instant genre classic.
