WFS has a Halloween treat for you

Oct. 20, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- The Western Film Society presents Halloween weekend showings of "The Shining," starring Jack Nicholson and directed by Stanley Kubrick.

Show times at Western Michigan University's Little Theatre are 9 p.m. and midnight Friday, Oct. 31, and Saturday, Nov. 1 Tickets are $5 general admission and $3 for students. Anyone in costume may participate in a costume contest.

"The Shining" is about a male novelist (Nicholson) who is having writer's block. He, his wife (Shelley Duvall) and his young son take care of a hotel in its off-season in the hopes the writer's block will pass. Nicholson is slowly driven insane by haunting voices and figures around the building, until finally he snaps and rampages through the hotel.

The Little Theatre is located at the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver Street on WMU's East Campus. Free, off-street parking is available behind the theatre. For more information, call the movie line at 387-8221 or visit the Western Film Society on the internet at <www.geocities.com/westernfilmsociety>.
