Hotel Used in ‘The Shining’ to Become Horror Museum and Film Center
If you have ever seen the movie, 'The Shining,' you were probably horrified. You may also remember the creepy hotel in which it was filmed. That facility is called The Stanley Hotel and there a now plans in the work to convert it into a horror-themed museum and film center.
The Stanley Hotel is located in Estes Park, Colorado. Depending on whether or not the state of Colorado will provide funding, the plan is to turn this historic structure into a one-of-a-kind museum and film center. It would be a place that would draw movie fans and film students from all over to enjoy. There are also plans in the works for a partnership with Colorado Film School.
According to 7 News in Denver,
According to nonprofit Go NoCo, which works with Loveland, Windsor, Estes Park, Larimer County and more, this would draw hundreds of thousands of more people a year including film students and artists. This is one of many new projects Go NoCo hopes will mean big tourism in northern Colorado.
The hotel’s board includes big names like Elijah Wood, Simon Pegg, George A. Romero, Mick Garris, Josh Waller and Daniel Noah.
There are already commitments for displays from 'Men in Black' and 'The Walking Dead.' I would recommend if you see a little boy on a big wheel, run away!
