BFI plans new theatrical release of ‘The Shining’

The BFI is about to give audiences what they’ve never seen before at the cinemas: the longer American version of ‘The Shining’.

Released back in 1980, ‘The Shining’ is considered to be one of, if not the greatest horror film of all time. It’s a classic, based on Stephen King’s best selling book, starring Jack Nicholson in his most memorable role. ‘The Shining’ was released in Europe with a different cut than in America and the BFI will be revealing to UK audiences a cut that is 24 minutes longer.

The original trailer to the movie is also being re-mastered and will promote the release this autumn. The film is scheduled for a Halloween release, and will be in over 100 cinemas around the UK.

Take a look at this preview trailer below to remind you of this horror classic, which has also been referenced in many films since its release.
