Here’s Johnny! The Shining at Ritz through next Monday!

'Tis the season! Late Show and Big Screen Classics presentations of Halloween favorite THE SHINING at Ritz with our signature Redrum cocktails on special!

Here’s Johnny! The Shining at Ritz through next Monday!

Just in time for Halloween, we’re showing the greatest horror film ever made. Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece about the Torrance family, holed up for the winter as the caretakers of the Overlook Hotel, is intense, stunning, and downright scary! It’s full of now-classic horror film moments, from ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY to “Heeere's Johnny!,” REDRUM, and those creepy twins, but it never feels clichéd or outplayed; it’s the kind of horror movie that ages well, the terrifying imagery and sounds only becoming stronger as the years go by. Starring Jack Nicholson from back when he was actually crazy, Shelley Duvall as the svelte wife with a baseball bat, and Scatman Crothers as Dick Hallorann, the Shining mentor for little Danny/Tony.

As is our annual tradition, we’ll be serving up some redrum cocktails – this year, created by our new beverage director, Bill Norris!
