Shining Ephemera

June 10, 2009

In honor of The Shining midnight shows at the IFC Center.

A poster by Polish designer Leszek Zebrowski



A doorway mural on Oranienstrasse, Berlin (thanks to I Dreamed Music)



The worst wake-up ever: The Shining cuckoo clock by Chris Dimino (thanks to Engadget)



Brilliantly oblique tribute poster from Tes One (courtesy of Grain Edit)



Poster by Jeff Kleinsmith for Rolling Roadshow screening of The Shining at the Timberline Lodge (the original Overlook Hotel) in Oregon in October 2008. 



First edition of the Stephen King book




The movie soundtrack LP



The British teaser poster based on a Daily Mirror spread



And, though everybody’s seen it, of course I need to add my favorite fake trailer (if not my favorite You Tube clip of all time)




  1. That Polish poster is scarier than anything in the actual film.

    This Shining-centric Channel 4 promo for a Season of Kubrick is also pretty dazzling: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4O6WVurC0j0

    • That Channel 4 promo is wonderful. Thanks for that.

      And let’s not forget the excellent Lego Shining while we’re at it:

  2. Amazing post, but this is totally unrelated. Have you seen this poster from Cold Souls? http://www.cinematical.com/photos/cold-souls-poster/2083721/
    I thought it might interest you.
