ROOM 237 is a subjective documentary feature which explores numerous theories about Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining” and its hidden meanings.  This guided tour through the most compelling attempts to decode this endlessly fascinating film will draw the audience into a new maze, one with endless detours and dead ends, many ways in, but no way out. 


The film was produced by Tim Kirk,  Metrodome released the film in the UK late in 2012 and it will play US theaters early in 2013 via IFC Midnight.
