The Shining Returning to Theaters in 4K Ahead of Doctor Sleep
Fandango is bringing back the classic adaptation for two nights only.
Mike Flanagan’s Doctor Sleep, the film adaptation of Stephen King’s sequel to The Shining, is set to release in November. While Warner Bros. previously announced that the Stanley Kubrick classic was receiving a 4K Ultra HD restoration set for release on October 1st, it has now been confirmed that it will also be returning to select theaters for two nights only on September 26th and October 1th.
Those in attendance for these showings will additionally be treated to a special sneak peek of Doctor Sleep. Interested moviegoers can check Fandango for showtimes near their location. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to see how it all began on the big screen.
Doctor Sleep brings back Danny Torrance, grown up and psychologically traumatized from what happened to him as a young boy. Danny, or Dan as he refers to himself now, spends years drifting across the country trying to find his purpose and deal with his inner-demons. He eventually settles in a New Hampshire town and finds work at a local hospice. He uses his psychic "shining" abilities to comfort the dying, and with the help of a cat that can sense the coming of death, Dan becomes known at the hospice as “Doctor Sleep.”
The cast includes Ewan McGregor (Star Wars prequels) as Dan Torrance, Kyliegh Curran as Abra Stone, Rebecca Ferguson (Life, Mission Impossible: Fallout) as Rose the Hat, Alex Essoe (Starry Eyes) as Wendy Torrance, Carl Lumbly (Alias) as Dick Halloran, Zahn McClarnon (Into the West) as Crow Daddy, and Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek, Star Trek: Into Darkness) as Dr. John.
In addition to directing, Mike Flanagan also helped rewrite a script submitted by Akiva Goldsman. Doctor Sleep is slated for release on November 8th, 2019.
