Netflix Rolling Roadshow Comes to Estes Park
I missed the first few. I missed Jaws on Martha’s Vineyard. Ferris Buehler’s Day Off in Chicago, but damnit, I’m hitting Estes Park for Netflix’s Rolling Roadshow screening of The Shining at the Stanley Hotel (hosted by Lisa Loeb).
That’s right, you can watch The Shining where it was filmed, at the haunted Stanley Hotel. Who knows, maybe Stephen King or Jack Nicholson will show up (Kevin Costner showed up in Iowa for the Field of Dreams screening).
Netflix, the DVD-by-mail service, has sponsored an incredible number of movie screenings to be screened where they were filmed all summer. It’s a huge undertaking, ending with a screening of “Escape from Alcatraz” on Alcatraz Island (The Rock would’ve been better, but oh well).
And this Wednesday, in Estes Park (North of Boulder) you can watch The Shining for free, and even partake in a 10 minute horror writing contest that happens before the show.
The Netflix Rolling Roadshow features cast member reunions and Q & As with filmmakers at select locations. And if you’re reading this from afar, fear not, there’s still Raising Arizona and three other films before summer’s end.
Update: A date would help, eh? How about the 16th, Wednesday. Click the link for more details.
