OBIT KUBRICK

“The Shining” was remastered to 4K using the original 35mm camera negative by Kubrick’s former personal assistant, Leon Vitali.

It’s screening at 7 p.m. Friday at Alamo Midtown.

The classic horror film features Jack Nicholson as a writer who takes takes a job as the wintertime caretaker of a snowy resort. Bringing his wife and young son with him, things take a very dark turn after they get snowed in.

Also screening at Alamo Midtown is the Jodie Foster sci-fi film “Contact” at 6 p.m. on Thursday and the classic shark movie “Jaws” at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

At Alamo La Vista, the silly ’90s video game movie “Street Fighter,” starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, will be shown at 10 p.m. Saturday. A 35mm version of musical comedy “Detroit Rock City,” where a bunch of ’70s teens go on a trek to see KISS, will be screened at 7 p.m. Sunday.
