Shining a light on The Shining

It comes as no surprise to learn that Stanley Kubrick was meticulous in his attention to detail when working on The Shining - even if he may have been uncertain about exactly how to translate elements of Stephen King's novel into the medium of film. That much is obvious from the BFI's Stanley Kubrick Archive, held at the University of the Arts London.

One thing you won't find in the archive is evidence that Kubrick was involved in faking the moon landings - though there may be fuel for various crackpot theories about the deeper significance of the film.
