Jeff Kleinsmith's Beautiful New Poster for The Shining!

When there's a lack of any good news (like today), I always love mentioning cool movie related things found across the net. This one today is something I've been meaning to feature because I absolutely love the design. The Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX is putting on a special screening of The Shining up in Oregon at the Timberline Lodge where Stanley Kubrick's film was actually shot. In honor of they event, they've commissioned Jeff Kleinsmith to design a new poster. Below you can see Kleinsmith's beautiful new Shining poster in all of its glory and if you're fast, you can buy one on Mondo Tees. Interested?

The event takes place on October 31st and tickets go on sale on October 10th, if you're interested. You can find more information over on the official website for the event here: shiningparty.com.

The Shining Poster

There are various ticket packages which include admittance to the party at the lodge that evening. At the stroke of midnight, all VIP Overnight guests are required to return to their rooms and turn on their TVs for a very special screening of The Shining. All VIP guests will be watching The Shining simultaneously, but in the privacy of their own rooms. If I was a big fan of The Shining, I'd be attending this in a heartbeat, no questions asked. I might also buy one of these posters just for the hell of it (I also bought one of these Blade Runner posters previously) because I love the look of it. Yea, the Alamo Drafthouse kicks ass!

    It reminds me of the poster for The Bank Job. It has that really distinct retro/vintage poster look to it. Props!

    While that poster is pretty cool, the idea of remaking a masterpiece like Kubrick's "The Shining" is borderline offensive to me. Why don't people re-make films that need to be improved?
  • That's a pretty slick design, but it looks more like a book jacket cover than a movie poster to me.

    Derek...Who said they were remaking it?
  • Ajax
    Eh.. I prefered the book than the movie. It would have been awesome to see the hotel blow up.
