The Event


See this anticipated sequel to Stephen King's THE SHINING before everyone else!

(The rest of the world only gets to see it five days later on 8 November)


Before watching this (on 3 Nov), on Halloween night (31 Oct) you can catch the rare chance to see Stanley Kubrick's timeless masterpiece The Shining on the big screen, only at the SA HorrorFest, leading up to the release of Doctor Sleep!

Book at:


Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook Hotel 40 years earlier (in The Shining), Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the “shine.” Instinctively recognizing that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality.

Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose. Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before — at once facing his fears and reawakening ghosts of the past.

Starring Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and newcomer Kyliegh Curran

Directed by Mike Flanagan, from his own screenplay based upon the novel by Stephen King.


For info on the rest of the HORRORFEST (running from 29 October - 7 November), which includes loads of movies and several short film chapters (which you're unlikely to see in any SA cinema), live soundtrack performance to a classic silent film, literature, Halloween dress-up competition and much more, head to and join the social media locations listed below the festival promo clip:
