Milwaukee Film is proud to present our chilling and thrilling Stephen King film series in partnership with the Milwaukee Chamber Theatre. After you check out THE SHINING, THE DEAD ZONE, and MISERY at the Oriental Theatre, be sure to get tickets to see a performance of Misery at the Milwaukee Chamber Theatre from November 18-December 18! Anyone who buys a ticket to any of these film screenings will get a chance to win free tickets to see the live theatre production of Misery on November 18! All work and no play makes Oscar-winning actor Jack Nicholson—the caretaker of an isolated resort—go way off the deep end, terrorizing his young son and wife (Shelley Duvall). Nicholson plays Jack Torrance, who's come to the elegant, isolated Overlook Hotel as off-season caretaker. Torrance has never been there before—or has he? The answer lies in a ghostly time warp of madness and murder. Master filmmaker Stanley Kubrick's visually haunting chiller, based on the bestseller by master-of-suspense Stephen King, is an undeniable contemporary classic. Newsweek called The Shining "the first epic horror film," full of indelible images, and a signature role for Nicholson whose character was recently selected by AFI as one of their 50 Greatest Villains.
