A few weeks after THE SHINING's original US release in 1980, the Director cut 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.
Preview on Wednesday 31 October at 8.30, with additional shows from 2 November, when we will also be screening ROOM 237 - a film about the making of THE SHINING.
For Hallowe'en, City Screen will have expert pumpkin-carving displays in the Riverside Bar from 7.00, with specially themed music and drinks, including a beer with a Jack chaser!
The fun will continue in the bar after the movie, so you can discuss the additional sections in this unedited version.
THE SHINING (15)
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.
