Stanley Kubrick's The Shining
looks so much better on the big screen. Whether it's the indelible image of Jack Nicholson bashing a door with an axe, or the climax set in a labyrinth of snow-smothered hedges, small TV screens simply do not do the film justice. The terrific 1980 thriller (based on a so-so Stephen King novel) screens at the Palace Theatre (1519 Euclid Avenue) tonight as part of the Cinema at the Square series.
