To give it the correct title, the hotel is the National Historic Timberline Lodge, but you get the drift.

The opportunity is being made available by the guys at On Set Cinema, who love to do this kind of thing. What is even better is that besides watching the film, you’ll have the opportunity to stay the night in the hotel, if you dare!

‘The Shining” is a cult horror classic

While King didn’t enjoy Kubrick’s version of his story and initial reviews were bad in 1980, the film has become a horror classic and is thought to be one of the greatest horror films of all times.

The film only brought in $44 million (£36 million) at the box office with a budget of $19 million (£15 million), but the film is still a popular choice for horror fans, including King’s many Constant Readers. Also, the film will now be released in a 4K Ultra HD format.

Sequel to ‘The Shining’ coming soon

The good news is that a sequel to “The Shining” is on its way. “Doctor Sleep” has been almost completed by director Mike Flanagan and is expected to screen in cinemas in November. The film will star Ewan McGregor as a grown-up Danny Torrance who has been pushing down his talents using booze, but finally gets to use them for good.
