‘The Shining’: Forwards and Backwards

Why: The Shining: Forwards and Backwards is exactly what it sounds like: a screening of The Shining with a (silent) reverse projection of The Shining screened on top. While I don’t believe the conspiracies that Stanley Kubrick hid secret messages in the movie, the man was a notorious symmetry junkie, and the structure of the film makes for some eerie moments, like the “Here’s Johnny” scene superimposed over a calm, pre-freak-out Jack Nicholson being welcomed to the hotel. You’ve seen lots of haunted-house movies, but have you ever seen a movie haunt itself? (SIFF Cinema Uptown, 511 Queen Anne N, siff.net, 7 pm, $11)
