Room 237 – Theatrical Trailer

Room 237 - Theatrical Poster - Courtesy of IFC MidnightIFC Midnight, via iTunes Movie Trailers, has released the new trailer for the critically-acclaimed documentary Room 237. The film is an in-depth analysis of Stanley Kubrick‘s classic film The Shining.  Room 237 is directed by Rodney Ascher.  It will be available on iTunes and will hit theaters in a limited release on March 29.

Room 237 is officially described as follows:

After the box office failure of Barry Lyndon, Stanley Kubrick decided to embark on a project that might have more commercial appeal.  The Shining, Stephen King’s biggest critical and commercial success yet, seemed like a perfect vehicle.  After an arduous production, Kubrick’s film received a wide release in the summer of 1980; the reviews were mixed, but the box office, after a slow start, eventually picked up.  End of story?  Hardly.  In the 30 years since the film’s release, a considerable cult of Shining devotees has emerged, fans who claim to have decoded the film’s secret messages addressing everything from the genocide of Native Americans to a range of government conspiracies.  Rodney Ascher’s wry and provocative Room 237 fuses fact and fiction through interviews with cultists and scholars, creating a kaleidoscopic deconstruction of Kubrick’s still-controversial classic.
