Fathom Events is bringing  the horror classic, The Shining, back to the silver screen for a one week special engagement. FlickDirect's Austin Putnam was able to catch one of viewings and gives his thoughts on this 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.

For those searching for more events by Fathom and want to see some more classic films brought to the silver screen, you can visit their website at http://www.fathomevents.com to see a schedule of all the upcoming events at a local theater near you. 


All work and no play makes Academy Award-winner Jack Nicholson ("As Good As It Gets," "Batman"), the caretaker of an isolated resort, go way off the deep end, terrorizing his young son and wife Shelley Duvall ("Roxanne").
