New Poster For The Documentary, Room 237

db_posters_22821

In Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror classic The Shining, Scatman Crothers’ chef Hallorann warns Danny Lloyd’s Danny to stay the hell away from room 237 of the Overlook Hotel — which turns out to excellent, if ignored, advice.

But while room 237 is to be avoided, the new documentary Room 237 is a must-see. The work of first-time director Rodney Ascher, the film showcases the theories of five obsessive Shining fans as to what Kubrick really intended with his Stephen King adaptation and features footage from both that snowy chiller and many others.

Room 237 opens theatrically on March 29 and will also be available on VOD, SundanceNOW, and other digital outlets from that date.
