I don’t buy into conspiracy theories, especially not conspiracy theories as utterly ridiculous as this one: Stanley Kubrick faked the moon landing and then left clues admitting what he’d done in The Shining. That’s the premise being put forward by a crackpot named Jay Weidner, based largely on the fact that Kubrick shot 2001: A Space Odyssey around the same time man was prepping to walk on the moon. Crazy? Sure. Wrong? Definitely. But let’s have a little fun with it.
Most of Weidner’s evidence is pretty flimsy. For instance he goes off on a jag about how the movie uses the letter “A” a lot, either in the script or in triangle shapes throughout the film, and so he assumes these are all references to Apollo 11. Pretty lame as a theory. But some of his ideas are a little more fun. Here’s a quick breakdown of some the less insane coincidences he spotted in The Shining:
