The Shining

We were insanely fortunate to see a digitally-restored version of The Shining yesterday...in a theater.  A real theater with an amazing sound system.  I think there were ten people in attendance, including us.

An amazing memory for sure.

Click below to see the opening credits.  Which became something totally new on such a massive screen.

Not sure why only 10 people would show up for that, but it probably made the experience all the more enjoyable. I feel like that's a movie best watched in small, silent gatherings.

We saw the original Halloween last year in a theater and it was much like your experience: small crowd. Still, it was a revelation to see it on the bigscreen, as I was only 10 when it was originally released.

I remember seeing this in the theater as a young lad when it first came out, what a fine memory!
