Halloween: The Shining Way!

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Tue, Oct 14, 2008 at 3:35 PM


Not thrilled with the prospect of spending Halloween night at your front door, giving bite-size KitKat to kids dressed in this mask? Then pack the car and head out the Timberline for a Halloween evening that would do Jack Torrance proud.

In 1980, Stanley Kubrick came to the Timberline Lodge to film one of the all-time great horror classics, THE SHINING. In the film, Jack Nicholson slowly loses his grasp on reality and loses himself in a hallucination of a 1920s era ball. Twenty-Eight years later, Nike Sportswear and Fantastic Fest have joined forces to recreate the very same ball at the very same lodge.

"Come Play With Us: A Celebration of The Shining at the Timberline Lodge" is taking over the historical building for a Halloween evening of dinner, live music, drinking (I assume there will be a "Red Rum" mix-drink), and an elevator that dispenses a tide of cascading blood. Okay maybe not the last one--too messy--but there are a couple packages available, and one includes an overnight stay in the lodge, complete with an in-room screening of the movie.

Here's hoping the door to your room can withstand an axe-wielding madman.
