DIRECTOR Stanley Kubrick’s film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining remains incredibly popular, even though it’s long been rumored that King himself hates the film. One of the most iconic “characters” is arguably the Overlook Hotel.
The screening will take place on December 1st at the scenic spot. In addition, it was the actual filming location for the film. The real name of the hotel is the National Historic Timberline Lodge.
“This is an extremely rare public screening of the movie at Timberline and seating is limited. Fans will have access to the hotel grounds for the day, as well as the interior of the lodge (the Cascade dining room, Ram’s Head Bar & Restaurant, Wy’East Café, Y’Bar, history exhibit, gift shop, game room & more).”
Admission for the Overlook Hotel screening is $70 per person. Those who purchase tickets for the screening will be offered a discount code for lodging at the hotel. An “Economy Twin” standard rate is $180, with the On Set Cinema rate going for $145. A “Queen” standard rate is $270, which is being discounted to $165. A “Queen Twin” normally goes for $300, with a discounted rate of $185. It’s also pointed out in the announcement that the lodge offers skiing year-round, so one could make a little mini, horror-themed vacation out of this whole thing.
While the Stanley Hotel inspired The Shining novel, Stanley Kubrick’s big screen adaptation of the movie did not take place there. Instead, the director shot exterior shots at the Timberline Lodge on the slopes of Mt. Hood in Oregon. The interior shots of the film were shot at Elstree Studios in England. However, the 1997 TV series of The Shining was shot on location at the Stanley Hotel.
