Hallowe'en horror at The Dukes!

John Freeman
Celebrate Halloween at The Dukes this weekend with one of the most frightening films ever made...

The Shining (15) stars Jack Nicholson in Stanley Kubrick’s terrifying masterpiece and was the choice of regular filmgoers at The Dukes who were asked which scary movie they would like to see screened for Hallowe'en.

The overwhelming favourite was The Shining and fancy dress is encouraged with spot prizes for the best dressed.

For the uninitiated, The Shining follows the story of disgraced schoolteacher Jack Torrence who accepts a job as the winter caretaker at the remote Overlook Hotel which soon reveals its dark, disturbing secrets.

• The Shining: Saturday 30 October, 8.30 pm. For tickets priced £5.50/£4.50, call The Dukes Box Office on 01524 598500 or visit
