Tom Whalen The Shining Movie Poster Release Details

Galerie F and Tom Whalen have been keeping secrets from us, but all has been revealed now.

The Logan Theatre in Chicago is a small local movie theater that has established a stronghold in this community as an entertainment staple. The theater is not only a beautiful building [opened in 1915 if you can believe it] but screens both contemporary releases and cult classics. The team over at Logan Theatre reached out to Galerie F to create an ongoing series of film posters to promote and commemorate the cream of the cult classic crop that they regularly show on the big screen. Galerie F felt like they hit the jackpot when they were told by Logan they wanted to premiere the partnership in October alongside their Horror Movie Madness series. The first release is Stanley Kubrick's THE SHINING - a Halloween masterpiece re-interpreted in this sleek minimalist design.

Tom Whalen is an unbelievably talented and prolific designer who knows precisely how to encapsulate a film, avoiding tropes and creating visually interesting designs. Galerie F are very excited to begin their working relationship with Whalen and look forward to the next few projects they have planned together.

The Shining by Tom Whalen. Edition of 75, hand numbered with a certificate of authenticity. Measures 18"x24". Printed at FugScreens Studios. Four colors on Cougar Natural 100#. Part of an ongoing collaborative series with The Logan Theatre.

Galerie F will be selling copies of this print at the first screening of THE SHINING - TONIGHT at 10:30PM CDT at Logan Theatre. Remaining copies will be available in store and online in the Galerie F website on Monday October 27th at a RANDOM TIME
