Room 237 at Alamo Drafthouse
BUY TICKETS AT: https://drafthouse.com/raleigh/show/room-237 We are so excited to be partnering with Alamo Drafthouse in presenting the documentary, "Room 237." Come hang out with APS and watch a great documentary with us! Stanley Kubrick's 1980 adaptation of Stephen King's novel THE SHINING is regarded as one of the best horror films ever made. While cinephiles admire THE SHINING for its iconic performances, dread-inducing atmospherics, and technical precision, others appreciate the film on an entirely different level. These fans see the film as a subversive commentary on such disparate topics as: the mass murder of the American Indians, Nazism, numerology, the rise of Western civilization, Freudian analysis, and the Apollo 11 moon landing "hoax." Rodney Ascher's ROOM 237 gathers five of these Kubrick obsessives and weaves their bizarre - and often incredulous - ideas into a thought-provoking exploration of far-reaching subtextual analysis and conspiratorial thinking. Best experienced as a double-feature with THE SHINING, Ascher’s ROOM 237 is a serious, and yet delightfully lighthearted, window into Kubrick’s film, a complex puzzle yearning to be solved.
