The Corridor Sessions: The Shining

On Friday 29th of November 2013, Watershed customers became guests at Stephen King’s Overlook Hotel for a special interactive screening of the newly-restored thriller The Shining, widely considered to be the most terrifying film of all time. This short film documents the one-off three hour event, which attracted a sell-out audience.

Compass Presents was asked to come in to The Watershed to provide mentoring in immersive cinema production to the Future Producers (a scheme created by The Watershed to equip young people with programming skills). Working together transformed the café-bar and unsettled and unnerved cinema-goers with a paper-strewn Colorado Lounge, a fortune-teller, a cast of hotel staff, and the mysterious Twins.
