Movies Under the Stars: The Shining

Directed by
Stanley Kubrick

Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) becomes winter caretaker at the isolated Overlook Hotel in Colorado, hoping to cure his writer’s block. He settles in along with his wife, Wendy (Shelley Duvall), and his son, Danny (Danny Lloyd), who is plagued by psychic premonitions. As Jack’s writing goes nowhere and Danny’s visions become more disturbing, Jack discovers the hotel’s dark secrets and begins to unravel into a homicidal maniac hell-bent on terrorizing his family.

Our 2021 “Movies Under The Stars” series wraps up with Stanley Kubrick’s notoriously terrifying adaptation of Stephen King’s classic novel.
