Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror film “The Shining” is considered crucial viewing for film lovers everywhere. Over 30 years later, its cult following is still growing. Director Rodney Ascher takes us into the warped world of some of the most ardent devotees of “The Shining” as they offer deconstructions of the film’s hidden messages, presenting evidence for theories-which range from the moon landing hoax to the mass killing of Native Americans-over a mind-bending collection of clips and freeze frames. This fascinating and immersive documentary is a true celebration of film fanaticism. What secret meaning lurks deep within the frames of this horror classic? Decide for yourself at a midnight screening at the State Theatre of “The Shining,” following “Room 237.”
