The Shining-based documentary Room 237 gets a release date.
According to CinemaBlend, the film will expose the conspiracies behind Stanley Kubrick’s classic film based on Stephan King’s The Shining. The film went through the festival circuit last year and critics and audiences liked it.
Room 237 is a film from the director’s insistence that the whole film is Kubrick's confession for a historical deception. The most devoted fans claim The Shining is about the Nazis or destruction of the Native Americans. After the failure of the 1975 film, Barry Lyndon, Kubrick decided to adapt Stephen King’s most popular work at the time, The Shining, reports Slash Film.
This is a film for fans of movie making magic. The story behind some of our favorite films is just as interesting as the story on film.
Room 237 will be released on March 29 at IFC Center and Elinor Bunim Monroe Film Center in New York City, followed by a national rollout. The film will simultaneously be available on Cable VOD, iTunes and other digital outlets (Sundance Now, Amazon Streaming, XBOX and more).
The film is directed by Rodney Ascher. Here is a trailer of the feature length documentary.
