The Shining

Although The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colo., was the inspiration for Stephen King's best-selling novel The Shining, the exterior shots of Stanley Kubrick's movie version were filmed at the Timberline Lodge, a historic ski lodge in Mount Hood, Ore. One piece of hotel trivia: In the book, the sinister room is number 217, but the hotel asked Kubrick to change the number to 237 in the movie so real guests wouldn't avoid the room.
