Jack Attack

While it's easy to fire up Netflix and hole up to satisfy your entertainment cravings, there are some classics that deserve to be experienced on the big screen in a crowd of eager movie hounds. Stanley Kubrick's impeccable horror film, The Shining, is one of them and it spills across the screen Saturday, March 16.

The 1980 film follows Jack Nicholson in one of his most iconic roles, Jack Torrance, a struggling writer who takes on the job of winter caretaker at the secluded Overlook Hotel. Torrance's slow descent into madness endangers the lives of his wife, Wendy (Shelly Duvall), and son, Danny (Danny Lloyd), who has psychic powers.
