Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining is nearly 40 years old and what better way to celebrate its upcoming anniversary with a brand-new 4K restoration of the classic horror film? This new version was made possible using a new 4K scan of the original 35mm camera negative, which was completed at Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging. Supervising the restoration process was filmmaker Steven Spielberg along with Kubrick’s former personal assistant, Leon Vatali.
