Academy Award-winning director Lee Unkrich has conceived and edited perhaps the definitive compendium on the film that remains a haunting cinematic classic.   

Written by J.W. Rinzler and published by TASCHEN in a limited edition of 1,000, the monumental book Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining features hundreds of never-before-seen photographs, rare production ephemera from the Kubrick Archive, and extensive new interviews with the cast and crew. Tonight, Unkrich will provide a deep dive into the creation of his massive new book, including never-before-seen glimpses into the making of Kubrick’s masterpiece, followed by a screening of the film. An adaptation of Stephen King’s novel, The Shining recounts a fateful winter when frustrated novelist Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) and his family (Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd) move into the cavernous, mountain-locked Overlook Hotel to care for it during the off-season. Kubrick’s mind-bending saga remains one of cinema’s most influential works.
