RSU Screening of ‘The Shining' Rescheduled

The screening of Stanley Kubrick's classic film "The Shining" at Rogers State University tonight has been rescheduled due to the winter weather. The film will be presented on Thursday, Feb. 25.

The film, which is free and open to the public, was originally scheduled to be shown tonight in the Will Rogers Auditorium on the RSU campus in Claremore.

The screening is part of the RSU Fine Arts Film Series, sponsored by the RSU School of Liberal Arts.

In "The Shining," Jack Nicholson portrays Jack Torrance, whose extreme winter isolation, altitude, claustrophobia and frustrated literary aspirations inspire him to murder his family. Although these psychological motivations are easily understood, the film's real horror exists where the psychological ends and the supernatural begins, McKeon said.

The film is rated R for some language, violence and nudity. For more information on the RSU film series and the rescheduled screening, call (918) 343-7594.
