The Shining Outdoor Screening 5/21
When you try to think of something creepy to do, what does it usually involve? A cemetary? Red Rum painted on a door? A bottle of wine and a blanket on the ground? Well, you're in luck. Cinespia is putting on a showing of everyone's favorite creepfest, The Shining, this Saturday May 21 at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery (6000 Santa Monica Blvd. at Gower). This is the 10th year that John Wyatt and his cohorts are assembling LA's cinephiles near the graves of Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks, and countless others to enjoy classic films in morbid style.
And what better way to celebrate such a landmark than with Stanley Kubrick's 1980 chilling film, The Shining. Sit under an almost full moon with a picnic basket and someone to hold onto when Jack becomes a not so dull boy. Gates open at 7, tickets are $10 (a donation to keep these events going), and you can buy them pre-sale now. Make sure to bring a jacket, you are outdoors after all. There will be a DJ before and after the screening, and as always, watch out for those pesky undead. This is just the beginning of the cemetery movie season, you don't want to get taken out by zombies too early.
