The Shining

For some reason the Museum of Fine Arts presents a Kubrick film festival each winter. The Shining is my favorite scary movie, but before this screening I'd only seen it in the theater once before, at the Brattle Theater* in Cambridge. Still a horror masterpiece. The Barbara and Theodore Alfond Auditorium is very comfortable.

*Unfortunately, because The Brattle Theater does not print the names of their screenings on their tickets - since they're a single-screen house there probably seems little point in buying a fancy ticket machine - it has been difficult for me to carefully track each Brattle screening I attend. That time I saw The Shining at The Brattle has slipped through the cracks.
