All work and no play…oh, you know the rest
If you’ve got nothin’ going on Halloween night, and if you live in Los Angeles, then why not spend an evening with Jack Torrance, his messed up kid with the bowl-shaped haircut and two terrifying ghostly twins (oh, lest we forget the dude in the furry suit)? Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining is playing at the, get a load of this, Hollywood Forever Cemetery (6000 Santa Monica Boulevard at Gower) on October 31st!
Yes, fiends, surround yourselves with the dead as you watch this classic tale of a writer slowly losing his mind with the help of some spooks from the Overlook Hotel.
The cemetery gates open at 5:30 pm and the film unravels at 7:00 pm. A $10 donation is requested as admission price, so pony it up. For more details, visit Cinespia.org. Helpful tip: Arrive early! You may think you’re the only one interested in taking in a screening on Halloween night, but you have no idea how many people I’ve brought this up to who are genuinely interested in forfeiting tricks and treats for this sure to be memorable night.
And don’t forget, if you haven’t raced off to Best Buy (or your retailer of choice), The Shining 2-disc special edition arrives in stores today.
