Stanley Film Center Rendering 1

Set at the footstep of Rocky Mountain National Park, on the grounds of one of America’s most iconic hotels, the Stanley Film & Horror Center will be home to events, exhibits, and an archive dedicated to horror film history and culture.

Made famous as the inspiration for Stephen King’s horror novel The Shining, the Stanley Film & Horror Center will celebrate the novel as well as Stanley Kubrick’s seminal film adaptation. A world-class auditorium will accommodate film premieres, festivals, and awards ceremonies, and a 13,000-SF film discovery center and archive will exhibit cinema artifacts and rare films from around the world, interactive games, and experiences for the whole family. The film production spaces will include a sound stage and editing suites, classrooms, and workshop spaces, while there will also be several outdoor theater spaces for “films under the stars.”
