Heeeeeeeeeeere's Johnny! The Shining Coming Back to Theaters

Hello all and happy October!

We've finally come to my favorite time of the year; cozy sweaters, crisp air and all things Halloween. I have a tradition where every October in preparation for my favorite holiday, I marathon any creepy/scary/campy horror movie throughout the whole month.

Now, normally, I don't get too freaked out by movies and only a few have ever made me cringe and The Shining is one of them. (This doesn't stop me from going "Redrum! Redrum!" while curling my finger at people, though.) To this day I can't look at Jack Nicholson without getting the willies. He's just too perfect at being a psychopath. This movie creeps me out so much that I usually take it out of the marathon line-up unless I have someone to watch it with me, and this year thanks to Turner Classic Movies, I can watch it with a whole theater filled with people!

TCM, Fathom Events and Warner Bros. Entertainment have teamed up to bring Stanley Kubrick's modern horror masterpiece take on Stephen King's novel back to select theaters for two days this month -- Sunday, October 23rd and Wednesday, October 26th at 2pm and 7pm local times. The screenings will also include exclusive commentary by TCM host, Ben Mankiewicz. Tickets and more information can be found on the Fathom Events website here.

Even though the majority of this movie creeps me out (I'm lookin' at you flood of blood) I may try dragging a few friends out to the theaters for this one. Anyone else? What other movies would you like to see back in theaters?


  1. Ohhhh I love this film! The music in it is soooo creepy aha!

  2. Geez, watching the Shining at home is pretty impressive enough... but watching it on a huge screen must be just awesome!!! It's one of my favorite thriller movies, and you are so right about Jack Nicholson - he's a perfect psychopath. I wish somewhere in French cinemas they'd organize such a screening!

    1. Oh, man that's a bummer! It seems like it'll be so cool.

  3. I love the Shining! It's a fantastic horror film.
