Steve Earle in Kent
Roots rockers Steve Earle and the Dukes are coming to the Kent Stage, 175 E. Main St., Kent, on Monday night.
The highly respected Grammy- and Emmy-nominated singer/songwriter released his 15th solo album, The Low Country, in April, and as with much of his catalog of his near 30-year recording career, it was hailed by critics, fellow artists and his intensely loyal fans.
Opening for Earle will be the Mastersons. Tickets are $32 and are available at www.thekentstage.com. Call 330-677-5005 for more information.
Just in time for Halloween, Cinemark’s Classic Series presents The Shining, Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Stephen King’s novel. Starring Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall, it’s a tale of horror in an isolated hotel.
King, who recently published a Shining sequel, Doctor Sleep, is not a fan of the Kubrick version, and there is lively debate to this day about the film. (Check out Laura Miller’s recent essay on Salon.com for one strongly written example.) But for others, it’s an eerie gem with one of the key performances in the Nicholson canon.
Tinseltown USA in North Canton and Cinemark Valley View are among the theaters showing The Shining at 2 p.m. today and 2 and 7 p.m. Wednesday.
