HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival 2014: The ShiningBryant Park
New York, NY
HBO closes out its 2014 season with Stanley Kubrick's psychological masterpiece The Shining. Loosely based on Stephen King's 1977 novel, the film stars Jack Nicholson as a writer who takes a job as a off-season caretaker at an isolated resort. But, what at first seems like an ideal situation for Nicholson to work on his novel, turns into a nightmare as he and his family begin to see horrific premonitions. Leave the kids at home for this one, and as with all screenings at Bryant Park, be sure to show up early to ensure a spot.
