The Shining 650

THE SHINING (Classic Screening)

Saturday, February 9 | 6pm | Tickets

Director: Stanley Kubrick
(1980, 146 minutes, Rated R)

Stanley Kubrick‘s screen adaptation of Stephen King’s THE SHINING has been called many things. An old-fashioned haunted house movie. A depiction of domestic abuse. The ultimate take on writer’s block. Indiewire recently went so far as to call it the greatest horror film of all time. Ultimately, THE SHINING is a Kubrick film, which means that some of the most penetrating and complex cinematography, compelling production design and deft editing combine with Jack Nicholson’s outrageous performance to create scenes that have bled into the fabric of pop culture and will haunt you, forever.

Followed by a conversation between Alec Baldwin and HIFF Artistic Director David Nugent.

All work and no play? After the movie, join HIFF + The East Hampton Star for a private, three-course dinner at the Maidstone Hotel! (Proceeds to benefit HIFF.)
