The Shining Locations
Under their watchful eye, the following special places were used for filming "The Shining":
These scenes were actually shot at The Timberline Lodge, located in Mt Hood, Oregon. Google Map
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]

LX is our radical new locations feature that we've been beavering away on.. For years!
Each location will have it's own page with then/now pictures, maps, StreetView, discovery story and the most detailed explanations on how the location was used. Most importantly, the locations will have a status that shows whether they are verified correct and by whom. We are working with the actual locations managers or other crew where possible. The whole thing will be very interactive and you will, of course, be able to update everything.
