Yesterday we told you about Fantastic Fest’s geektastic party at the Timberline Lodge, the original shooting location for Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. In the post I mentioned that one of the things that a Limited Edition Silkscreened Event Poster was being included in the packages. And you know how much I love Alamo’s tribute posters… The two posters are now available online. Billy Perkins and Jeff Kleinsmith (who recently when head to head on the Good Bad Ugly Posters earlier this year) have created two new posters for The Shining to celebrate the event. Both measure 24×36, and both are signed and numbered, and printed by D and L. Available on Mondotees for $30.

The Perkins print is also available in a blood red variant (seen above) for $50. Click on the designs to enlarge. And if you want one, snatch it up while you still can at Maze Poster, Blue Jack, Red Variant Jack

Completely unrelated to the Alamo/Fantastic Fest sponsored event is an art show called Artwork and No Play at the Phone Booth Gallery in Hollywood (which is running until October 31st). A number of the art pieces from the show are up for sale on, but I first want to point out the following two signed and numbered prints which are also available.

R Black’s poster for the “Artwork and No Play” show is available as a 3 color screenprint, signed and numbered (limited to 100 prints) on 18 x 24 Boise Smooth Opaque 100 pound cover stock for $49.

Kevin Tong’s “Wave of Mutilation” is available as a 2 color screenprint on 9.75 x 16.25 french paper. Signed and numbered (only 50 printed) for $40.

Check out some of the other original art available for sale after the jump.

The Shining at Timberline Lodge

Fantastic Fest is holding a party at the Timberline Lodge in Oregon, the original filming location of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. Check out the information below:

In 1980, Stanley Kubrick came to the Timberline Lodge to film one of the all-time great horror classics, THE SHINING. In the film, Jack Nicholson slowly loses his grasp on reality and loses himself in a hallucination of a 1920s era ball. Twenty-Eight years later, Nike Sportswear and Fantastic Fest have joined forces to recreate the very same ball at the very same lodge.

Two ticket options are available for this special night:

VIP Overnight Package:

Dinner at the Lodge
3 Cocktails per person
Live music and shows throughout the evening
Limited Edition Silkscreened Event Poster (seen right, also available on
A one-night stay at the historic Timberline Lodge
In-room screening of the film
VIP gift package
Continental breakfast the morning after the party

This VIP Overnight Package is designed for couples who want to stay the night. Ticket price is $100 per person ($200 per room). Note: the regular Timberline room rate is $220/night for just the room. As there are only 50 rooms available for overnight stay, we are offering a “the Gold Room ticket,” a discounted admission to the party for guests not staying the night.

The Gold Room Ticket:

Dinner at the Lodge
3 Cocktails per person
Live music and shows throughout the evening

Round trip bus service to and from the party

Only 200 Gold Room tickets are available for $25 per person.

At the stroke of midnight, all VIP Overnight guests are required to return to their rooms and turn on their TVs for a very special screening of THE SHINING. All VIP guests will be watching THE SHINING simultaneously, but in the privacy of their own rooms.

Note: VIP guests will need to provide their own transportation to the lodge. VIP Overnight guest check-in begins at 6:00 PM on October 31 and check-out is at 11:00 AM on November 1.

Tickets for this event go on sale on Friday, October 10 at 2:00 PM PST at, where you can find additional details and updates about the event. As tickets are extremely limited, we anticipate this show to sell out quickly.

Joker vs Joker (Jack Nicholson vs Heath Ledger) by SilverLightsaber

The Pitch: Jack or Heath? Which Joker is better? SilverLightsaber put together a trailer mashup where both Jokers must face off. Not quite as good as Battle of the Batmans, but worth checking out.

Errol Morris’ short film which opened the Academy Awards show was fantastic. If you didn’t see it, you can check out the video at

Ellen DeGeneres is not funny (with exception of the Jennifer Hudson/Al Gore joke, but I have a feeling someone probably wrote that for her).
