The Shining is a convergence of genius, from King’s source material to Kubrick’s visionary film adaption. Even if the two masterminds didn’t agree, what came out of it is forever embedded into the mainstream horror lexicon. “Here’s Johnny!” is known to all ages, as either what Jack Nicholson says in the film or just Ed McMahon introducing Johnny Carson. The film is iconic and known across the world as one of the best horror movies ever.
If you thought watching Jaws while floating on an inner tube at Martha’s Vineyard looked like fun, what do you think about checking into The Shining at the original Overlook Hotel sound?
On Set Cinema’s The Shining event will take place at The Timberline Lodge, a majestic luxury inn situated on a beautiful mountain peak in the Pacific Northwest, which served as the outside of the sinister Overlook Hotel back in 1980. Not only does this event include a screening of the film, but other perks are also available to turn it into the whole thing into a horror road trip proper.
In a statement from the event organizers:
This is an extremely rare public screening of the movie at Timberline and seating is limited. Fans will have access to the hotel grounds for the day, as well as the interior of the lodge (the Cascade dining room, Ram’s Head Bar & Restaurant, Wy’East Café, Y’Bar, history exhibit, gift shop, game room & more).
Attendees have the option to stay overnight as well. The screening happens on Sunday, December 1, 2019, at 7:00pm. Ticket holders will also receive a discount code for Sunday night, should they decide to actually sleep at the lodge afterwards. The next day could be filled with top notch skiing. The Timberline Lodge is the only ski lodge in North America that’s open year round.
