The Shining: Book vs. Movie

Buy Tickets


It’s a novel from the master of horror and a film from the greatest filmmaker of his generation, and now you can read and see The Shining, complete with a reception in a historic (and perhaps haunted) hotel.


Des Moines Film Society and the Des Moines Public Library Foundation Next Chapter are proud to present The Shining, Book vs. Movie.


After reading the novel, attendees invited to a screening Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining on the big screen at the historic Kirkwood Hotel. A reception will follow, with complimentary food from Vivian’s Diner and Drinks and a cash bar.


The Next Chapter is a group of young professionals that come together with the goal to further the mission of the Des Moines Public Library Foundation through programming that complements the library resources.


Tickets for the film and reception are $12, or $9 for members of Des Moines Film Society.
