“THE SHiNiNG” Nite

The Movie AND a Masquerade After-Party

A Unique Halloween Happening, One Day Later

That’s also a Benefit for Friends of the Loew’s

November 1, starting at 7PM

At the Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre 54 Journal Square, Jersey City, NJ 07306 (201) 798-6055 loewsjersey.org For tickets: http://shining-nite-loews.eventbrite.com/. The Landmark Loew’s Jersey is a historic theatre operating as a non-profit arts center

Halloween fun will last one day longer at the Loew’s Jersey this year thanks to Jack and friends from the Overlook Hotel, and will also help raise funds for Friends of the Loew’s …

On November 1 at 7PM the legendarily creepy “The Shining” starring Jack Nicholson will be shown on The Loew’s Jersey’s BIG 50ft WIDE screen.


After the movie, starting at 9:30PM, patrons will step out to the Grand Lobby and into an elegantly decadent Masquerade After-Party!

It’ll have a 1920s theme to celebrate the Loew’s 85th Anniversary. And the ‘20s theme will also make party-goers feel like they’re back in one certain scene in “The Shining” — a little eerie, maybe, but also a lot of fun!

There’ll be a great mix of music & dancing all night, light refreshments, a cash bar (wine & beer) and a surprise or two.

And because a Masquerade has become a new tradition at the Loew’s, they’ll be a Costume Contest for fun prizes with categories that include “Best Jack”, “Best Movie Star” and “Best Over-All”.

But patrons don’t have to wear a mask. Costumes are preferred, not required, so party-goers can come as they are, if they want.

“THE SHiNiNG” Nite is being presented as a benefit for Friends of the Loew’s, Inc. To help support our work of operating, restoring and maintaining the Landmark Loew’s Jersey as a non-profit arts center to serve our community and region.


Advance tickets are just $25, and include one free drink! You can get them now at http://shining-nite-loews.eventbrite.com/.

Tickets at the door will be $30.

And for anyone who can’t attend the party but still wants to see the movie, admission for the screening of “The Shining” only will be $8.

The Loew’s Is Easy To Get To: The Loew’s Jersey Theatre, at 54 Journal Square, Jersey City, NJ, is directly across JFK Boulevard from the JSQ PATH Center with trains to and from Lower and Midtown Manhattan and Newark’s Penn Station, and is minutes from the NJ Turnpike, Rts. 3 and 1&9 and the Holland & Lincoln Tunnels. We’re easy to reach by car or mass transit from throughout the Metro Region.

Discount off-street parking is available in Square Ramp Garage adjoining the Loew’s at the foot of Magnolia Avenue off of Tonnelle Avenue, behind the Loew’s. Patrons must validate their parking ticket before leaving the Theatre.

What’s Special About Seeing A Movie At The Loew’s? The Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre is one of America’s grandest surviving Movie Palaces. We show movies the way they were meant to be seen: in a grandly ornate setting – on our BIG 50 ft wide screen! The Loew’s runs reel-to-reel — not platter — projection, which often allows us to screen an archival or studio vault print that is the best available copy of a movie title.

The Loew’s is wheelchair accessible. The Loew’s Jersey is managed by Friends of the Loew’s, Inc. as a non-profit, multi-discipline performing arts center.
