The opening scenes were filmed in Montana on the Going-To-The-Sun-Road in the Glacier National Park. The road was built in the 1930s I believe. [Thanks to John Orr]

The Timberline Lodge was where all the exterior filming of the hotel took place. I have worked there for 6 years and we as staff were trained on the history of the building for all the inquiring visitors. If you look up the lodge you will see it is the exact one in the movie. [Thanks to Mallory Manno]

The interiors of the hotel were shot on a studio soundstage.

I remember hearing that the interiors, even though filmed in a soundstage, were actually made to look like the inside of the Ahwanee Hotel. [Thanks to Stuart Myatt]

Some of the interiors of the "Overlook Hotel" are in the Ahwahnee Hotel, located in Yosemite National Park! I have seen them. [Thanks to Cindy Romero]

Can you help? Do you know any of the Oregon (or any other) filming locations used for The Shining? [Please send them in]
