The Valentine Theatre’s Silver Screen Classics series kicks off with The Shining

. October 25, 2017.

Is The Shining the scariest horror film of all time? Many film purists think so, but horror legend Stephen King, author of the book upon which it is based, hates the film because it deviates too much from the source material. Still, director Stanley Kubrick created a masterpiece of visual terror and storytelling in this first film of the Valentine Theatre’s annual Silver Screen Classics series. Starring Jack Nicholson, as a caretaker watching over a haunted mountain hotel for the winter. As the ghosts show up, the caretaker begins to lose his mind. A full bar and popcorn are available. $5. 7:30pm. Friday, October 27. Valentine Theatre, 410 Adams St.,
