The Shining, Timberline Lodge
Oh, yes, Timberline Lodge is a movie star. It's been in many movies, but its most famous role is in the 1980 classic horror movie The Shining
, with Jack Nicholson. But the truth is that while Timberline provided the hotel exterior for the movie, most of the movie was filmed on a studio set. Only a few outdoor scenes were shot at the lodge. Fortunately, this lodge has more to offer the visitor than a famous film location! Don't worry about being booked into room 237, which is prominently featured in the movie. It does not actually exist.
