Ushers' Choice: Cinema of the 80s
The first film in a new short season of films chosen by our volunteer ushers.
Dir: Stanley Kubrick, US, 1980, 144 mins
Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd
From a script he co-adapted from the Stephen King novel, Kubrick melds vivid performances, menacing settings and shock after shock into a milestone of the macabre. In a signature role, Jack Nicholson plays Jack Torrance, who's come to the elegant, isolated Overlook Hotel as off-season caretaker with his wife and son. A ghostly time warp of madness and murder.
