RSU Screening of Stanley Kubrick's ‘The Shining' Thursday

The ShiningA screening of Stanley Kubrick's classic film "The Shining" will be presented on Thursday, Feb. 25, at Rogers State University.

The film, which is free and open to the public, will be shown at 6:30 p.m. 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.
