Shining Big Screen


I┬ájust saw the Shining on the big screen. I’ve seen it hundreds of times on VHS but its a completely different experience on the Big Screen. ( Alamo Drafthouse San Antonio). With a clean color corrected print, full screen and full sound.

QUESTION” do you think the film is saying that Jack Torrance is possessed by one of the ghosts of the Overlook ( the ghost of the caretaker) or that he is the reincarnation of the care taker? Was his face always in that B&W photo or did he join them at the end of the movie?
