The 1980 horror film, The Shining is considered a cult classic. Based on the novel by Stephen King, it is about a writer called Jack Torrance, who takes on a job in a haunted hotel. It isn't long before Jack and his family get trapped inside, and the paranormal retreat starts to send him crazy.
The only available version of The Shining in the UK is an edited edition, and is 25 minutes shorter than the original, meaning any fans of the film miss out on the full experience. But now, the British Film Institute is showing the full 144 minute uncut version that is only currently available in the US or region 1 DVDs.
There will be a special Halloween preview on the 31st October at various venues across the UK, with the main showings from the 2nd of November until the 10th January.
For Londoners, you can see the film at the BFI in Southbank, or the Curzon cinema in Soho. You can check here for other areas, and book tickets online.
