RA That's great! And another thing that a lot of them say is, "I'm gonna go and immediately re-watch The Shining," which is awesome. The Shining is a maze that certainly me and the people that we talked to can't get out of — so there's something satisfying about luring other people back into the middle of it. 

ROOM 237 opens Fri/19 at the Roxie.
