Blumhouse Launching Exhibit at ‘The Shining’ Hotel in Colorado
The Horror Studio Is Bringing Its Scary Films, TV Shows, and Games to the Historic Hotel
Blumhouse, the horror studio behind hits like Get Out and M3GAN, is stepping out of the movie theater and into the real world with a new exhibit at The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. The hotel is known as the inspiration for Stephen King’s classic novel The Shining.
The exhibit, called the Stanley Film Center, will be a “mini-Academy Museum dedicated to horror.” It will feature over 10,000 square feet of space filled with props, costumes, and other artifacts from Blumhouse‘s vast catalog of horror films, TV shows, and video games.
“Here’s Blumhouse! This iconic Colorado hotel will now have a new element of fun and fright for Coloradans and visitors across the world to enjoy, driving tourism and strengthening our economy,” said Colorado Gov. Jared Polis in a statement.
Blumhouse CEO Jason Blum added, “The Stanley Hotel is hallowed ground for horror fans and that makes this presence at the Stanley Film Center a natural extension for Blumhouse. Fans are going to get closer than ever before to their favorite films, though they may want to keep their distance with a few of the ‘items’ in our collection.”
Blumhouse‘s exhibit at The Stanley Hotel is set to open in 2026.
How Blumhouse Created a Modern Horror Dynasty
Blumhouse is a relative newcomer to the film industry, but in just a short time, the horror-centric company has left its blood-soaked mark on pop culture. With modern original franchises like Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Insidious, and Sinister, Blumhouse has reminded moviegoers that you don’t need a $100 million plus budget to create a smash hit.
Blumhouse is known for making films with cost-effective budgets and turning a massive profit. M3GAN, Insidious: The Red Door, and Five Nights at Freddy’s are just the latest examples of this. Even their more expensive ventures like their Halloween reboot trilogy and The Exorcist: Believer were still incredibly below the industry standard in terms of budget.
Blumhouse has also had its share of underperformers, like the Black Christmas remake, but their output has mostly been amazing for mainstream horror. Films like The Invisible Man remake, Hush, Sick, The Black Phone, and Totally Killer are some of the finest works in the genre over the last decade.
What to Expect from the Blumhouse Exhibit at The Stanley Hotel
The Blumhouse exhibit at The Stanley Hotel will cover all of the company’s film, TV, and video game catalog, so the possibilities are endless. We can expect to see props, costumes, and other artifacts from films like Get Out, M3GAN, The Purge, Insidious, Sinister, Paranormal Activity, The Invisible Man, Hush, Sick, The Black Phone, and Totally Killer.
The exhibit will also likely feature interactive elements, such as a haunted house or a virtual reality experience. Visitors will be able to get up close and personal with their favorite Blumhouse horror characters and learn more about the making of their favorite films.
The Blumhouse exhibit at The Stanley Hotel is sure to be a must-see for horror fans of all ages.
