Heeeere's Johnny…back on the big screen! Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Warner Bros. Entertainment invite you to relive Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece of modern horror, The Shining (1980), when it returns toselect cinemas nationwide for a special event.
From a script he co-adapted from the Stephen King novel, director Stanley Kubrick melds vivid performances, menacing settings, dreamlike tracking shots and shock after shock into a milestone macabre. In a signature role, Jack Nicholson ("Heeeere's Johnny!") plays Jack Torrance, who's come to the elegant, isolated Overlook Hotel, as the off-season caretaker with his wife (Shelley Duvall) and son (Danny Lloyd). Torrance has never been there before – or has he? The answer lies in a ghostly time warp of madness and murder.
