Stanley Kubrick’s THE SHINING
(R, 1980, 144 min)

Jack Nicholson stars as Jack Torrance, who accepts a job as the winter caretaker for a hotel high in the Rocky Mountains. But when the first blizzard blocks the only road out, the hotel’s stored energy from evil past deeds begins to drive Jack insane…and there may be no escape for his family in this haunting story of madness, memory, and violence.

Followed by:

Taylor Hackford’s DOLORES CLAIBORNE
(R, 1995, 132 min)

In a small New England town, Dolores Claiborne (Kathy Bates) works as a housekeeper for the rich but heartless Vera Donovan (Judy Parfitt). When Vera turns up dead, Dolores is accused of killing her elderly employer — so her estranged daughter, Selena (Jennifer Jason Leigh) decides to visit her mother and investigate the matter for herself. As Selena digs deeper into the case, she uncovers shocking truths about the murder and her own childhood.
