The film will be screened on Thursday 7th May, at 1700 BST (GMT+1), and will be followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with project leader and filmmaker Howard Berry.

Howard Berry, leader of The Elstree Project, was invited by the Design Museum and University of the Arts London, to give the second annual Stanley Kubrick Lecture at the Design Museum on Friday 13th September 2019.
Howard's lecture - entitled Surviving The Shining, or: “This guy should be sued!” How The Shining was filmed at Elstree and Changed the Studio Forever… and ever… and ever… - gave the comprehensive story of how production of The Shining utilised the space at EMI Elstree Studios, from soundstages and backlot, to workshops and offices.
THE ELSTREE PROJECT REUNITES THE SHINING CREW TO CELEBRATE 35 YEARS OF KUBRICK’S HORROR CLASSIC
“Come play with us. Forever… and ever… and ever…”
When the Grady Twins said those words at Elstree Studios 35 years ago, they really meant it. And to prove it, they are returning - by invitation of The Elstree Project - on 23 May 2015 to celebrate the original release of The Shining.
Supported by the Kubrick family, Warner Brothers and Elstree Studios, “Forever and Ever: 35 Years of The Shining” will bring back many of the original crew and cast of the film to the very studio where the film was made.
