On Halloween weekend, The Cabot invites you to get away from it all at The Overlook Hotel – it’s our annual October screening of The Shining!

Based on the novel by Stephen King and directed by Stanley Kubrick, The Shining follows Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson), a novelist hoping to cure his persistent writer’s block by taking a job as the winter caretaker of the Overlook Hotel, which is located deep in the mountains and closes down each autumn before the heavy snows fall. Jack brings his wife Wendy (Shelly Duvall) and young son Danny along with him, and after the last employees leave they are soon isolated at the hotel. Soon, the supernatural forces inhabiting the hotel begin to take their toll on the family: Danny starts having psychic visions and premonitions that grow more disturbing as the winter passes, and Jack’s writing goes nowhere while he becomes more irritable and unhinged.

Rated R. Run time approx. 2 hours 30 minutes.
