The Shining NOT Being Screened with its Original Ending in Rochester, New York
We hate it when a plan falls apart. A couple of weeks ago, or was it last week? (so much new; so few brain cells)... Anyway, previous reports of a rare print of The Shining with an alternate ending being shown in New York have proven false.
The Daily Dead got the heads-up from the theatre that was slated to show the film:
It has come to our attention the print of the film we will be showing does not in fact have the two-minute final scene that Mr. Kubrick cut following the film's initial screenings.
The version of The Shining screening at Eastman House will be the 142-minute extended U.S. version that includes footage Mr. Kubrick subsequently cut from the European release.
Well, that's at least something, right? Still, very disappointing.
