Home Is Where the Horror Is: The Shining
O Cinema South Beach
July 10 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
The eerily disorienting interiors of the Overlook Hotel, the isolated setting for Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining (1980), feed a sense of psychological unrest in characters and viewers alike. From its unnatural light and impossible layout to its overwhelming scale, the building is not a mere backdrop, but rather an expression of the inner fears of a family living in an otherwise empty hotel for the winter season. The third installment of our summer haunted house film series with O Cinema, this screening will be followed by a discussion led by Igor Shteyrenberg, Popcorn Frights Film Festival co-founder/co-director, who will explore the relationship between domestic interiors and mental states.
Presented in partnership with O Cinema South Beach as part of The Wolfsonian’s Mark Mamolen program series on American homes, investigating how the design of living space powerfully expresses individual personality and social values.
