***Updated 9/28: Editor's note- George Eastman House contacted us with some sad news for those planning on attending (myself included). The print does not contain additional the additional ending footage.

They have issued the following notice: "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."

So if you own a US version of the film on DVD/Blu-ray, you have the 142-minute version of the film. We're trying to get some additional information how the mix-up occurred, but you'd think the print would have been checked before making this announcement public.***

Did you know that Stanley Kubrick re-cut The Shining days after it first started screening? It didn't have one big wide release like movies do today, so it only managed to play at a handful of theaters before Kubrick removed scenes from the final cut of the film we are all familiar with.

On October 22nd, the Dryden Theater in Rochester, NY will be screening the uncut version of the film, which includes additional footage during the ending:

"An unstable writer (Jack Nicholson) takes a winter caretaking job at a snowed-in mountain lodge, quickly succumbs to “cabin fever” — or is it something far worse? — and terrorizes his hapless wife (Shelley Duvall) and creepy, psychic son (Danny Lloyd). A brilliant study of domestic abuse and possession — demonic, creative, and familial — this is Kubrick’s horror masterpiece as you’ve never seen it, complete with a chilling coda cut from the original release."

According to Bleeding Cool, the additional scenes include:

-"...some state troopers look for Jack, frozen in the ice, but don’t seem to be seeing him..."

-"Then a longer scene. It’s set in a hospital, where Ullman, the Overlook’s manager, tries to convince Wendy and Danny that nothing supernatural had happened in his hotel. He explains that Jack’s body was not recovered, and he gives Danny a tennis ball – presumably the same one that he followed into room 237."
