Oct. 24: The Shinning

From October 24 to October 31. L’Ipéen & The Charlottetown Film Society will host a series of Halloween/horror films

A reminder of our special : $10 for the first movie you come to see in a week and $5 for the others (it only apply to the movies in the Charlottetown Film Society/L’Ipéen film series and on the movies that are shown in the same week (Monday to Sunday), it doesn’t include movies in the regular City Cinema programming.) – Tickets will be available at the door or on eventbrite.ca

Here’s the 1st film that we selected to show in this series:

The Shining (Stanley Kubrick, 1980)
Wed. Oct 24, 9 :15
Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd

A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.

”Kubrick understands how he has to manipulate his audiences in this genre. He doesn’t mess about with obvious exposition, he gives the audience more questions than we’ll ever have answers for. For a long time he doesn’t try to answer whether Jack is crazy or whether the hotel is truly haunted. It only chooses what is what when the horror travels from the psychological to the physical in the final act.

This is, simply put, one of the best horror films ever made, being a perfect representative of both the genre and the medium. ” Masters Of Cinema
