Description: As part of “2012: A Kubrick Odyssey” – a complete chronological series of Kubrick entire filmed oeuvre – the Los Angeles County Museum of Art screens the filmmaker’s 1980 adaptation of the Stephen King novel, set in the notorious Overlook Hotel, haunted by a multitude of ghosts, with a penchant for driving the winter caretakers to homicidal extremes. Though criticized at the time of its release for not playing by the rules of the genre (King himself was ambivalent at best about the result), THE SHINING now stands at one of the greatest achievements in cinematic horror – cold, deliberately slow, enigmatic, and fascinating.
Tickets to the Bing Theater are $10 for the general public; $7 for LACMA members, seniors (62+), and students with valid ID; $5 LACMA Film Club members and Academy members with valid ID.
“2012: A Kubrick Odyssey” is presented conjunction with LACMA’s Stanley Kubrick exhibition, which runs through June 30, 2013.
