Room 237

Friday, March 29 - Thursday, May 16, 2013

You think you like The Shining? Meet some serious fans. In the 30 years since the film’s release, a considerable Shining cult has emerged, devotees who claim to have decoded the film’s secret messages addressing everything from the genocide of Native Americans to a range of government conspiracies. Rodney Ascher’s wry and provocative ROOM 237 fuses fact and fiction, interviewing cultists and scholars to create a kaleidoscopic deconstruction of Kubrick’s still-controversial classic.
