Where did they film The Shining take 2

I can't believe the first one was shut down after I went to all the work to find links for you guys:

Here's my original post:

The interior, believe it or not, is indeed a set!

But the interior set was inspired by several real hotels and lodges, principally the Ahwahnee in Yosemite. Check out the pics in this link, second picture down:

The first time I walked into the place it scared the hell out of me.

The main hall where Jack does his "writing" is verbatim from the Ahwahnee. When I was a kid I thought they had actually filmed the movie there, because it is so similar. The Indian motiffs on the floor are simialar, as are the black and red doors that were integrated into the set in London.

Here's another link:

I'll go look for some more. I'm trying to find a pic of the black and red doors. I don't think the Ahwahnee has an elevator.

By "The Shinning" you mean the great "Simpsons" episode of "Treehouse of Horror" right? I wish I could figure out where they filmed that.

Why'd you call this The Shinning? You don't want to get sued?

Of course that was drawn live in front of a studio audience

Here is a brief tour (not that great): http://www.nautiloid.net/grayvine/yo...002/hotel.html
