Darlings, 2013 is shaping up to be the year of The Shining. First there was Stephen King’s announcement of Dr. Sleep , the long-planned sequel to the 1977 novel, due out this September. Then there’s the touring Stanley Kubrick exhibit that finally made its US landfall and will be ensconced at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) through June 2013. Now Pajiba has reported that Room 237, the Shining documentary that premiered at last month’s Sundance festival, will get simultaneous release in theaters and On Demand this March.
Although the trailer is really more of a teaser, the documentary’s focus will be on Kubrick’s approach and use of symbolism in this iconic bit of horror. Now, that sounds like something you’d like to watch, doesn’t it?
I thought as much, darlings. Room 237 is schedule for release March 29, 2013.
