Looking for things to do in Orange County during the month of February? Take part in the showing of The Shining on Saturday, February 27 at 7:30pm at Tustin’s Mess Hall Market. In short The Shining film is an adaptation of Stephen King’s 1977 bestseller, where a struggling writer takes a job as a winter caretaker of an isolated hotel in Colorado. While he and his family settle in, his son experiences psychic apprehensions that get worse day by day at the creepy hotel. Throughout the time at the hotel, the Father (Jack) discovers the dark secrets it holds and leads him to become a homicidal maniac set on terrorizing his family.
The film will be shown at the Mess Hall Market, a world-class chef-driven food hall that offers a wide variety of food and beverage options. The venue offers copious amounts of parking and a truly memorable dining experience.
WHAT TIME IS ARRIVAL?
The gates of the venue will open at 5:30pm! The placement of cars will be coordinated on a first-come, first-served basis. The placement of cars will be in a 4 structure parking structure and will be organized in sections based on car sizes.
HOW DO I PURCHASE MY TICKET AND GET ADMISSION?
After purchasing your ticket, you will receive an email to your desired email address that contains a PDF attachment of your tickets. Upon your arrival at the venue, you will need to show the attendant the barcode on your ticker through the car window. The attendant will then scan the code and let you in to park.

The film will be similar to a silent-style Drive-In movie with no outside speakers. The soundtrack of the film will come through your car’s FM radio. The venue will provide you with the station to tune into upon your arrival. Before you arrive at the venue make sure your car has an FM radio so you will be able to hear the film.
CAN I BRING FOOD AND SNACKS?

Yes! Restrooms will be available at the Mess Hall Market. In accordance to social distancing and safety requirements, everyone leaving their vehicle will be required to wear a mask for any reason, including the use of the restroom.
REMEMBER TO TURN YOUR ENGINE ON EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE…
Because your battery will be utilized to power your FM radio to hear the sound of the film, you run the risk of killing your battery. While the venue is prepared with jumper cables, eliminate the risk of your battery dying by turning your car on every once in a while.
