The AT&T Performing Arts Center will present The Shining as part of its Sunset Screenings series. Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson), a writer and recovering alcoholic, takes a job as an off-season caretaker at the isolated Overlook Hotel. His young son possesses psychic abilities and is able to see things from the past and future, such as the ghosts who inhabit the hotel. Soon after settling in, the family is trapped in the hotel by a snowstorm, and Jack gradually becomes influenced by a supernatural presence; he descends into madness and attempts to murder his wife and son.
The free outdoor screenings at Strauss Square provide an opportunity for the public to relax in a spectacular downtown venue in the Dallas Arts District while enjoying a movie.
Admission to Sunset Screenings is free. RSVPs are encouraged, but not required. Two hundred reserved seats in chairs at the front of the lawn are available, with additional seating on the lawn; chairs are first come first seated.
Visitors can bring their own food and drinks, including alcoholic beverages. Soft-sided coolers and picnic baskets up to 16” X 16” will be allowed.
