Room 237 is more than an inquiry into the theories surrounding the meanings wintin Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. It’s about our love affair with movies, with film; about our mind’s ability to assign meanings that are as much projections of our own beliefs as they may (or may not be) about the filmmaker’s intentions.

Patty Schemel was the drummer in Hole during one of the most gripping periods in modern music. As she was also one of the few women drummers to ever receive any amount of success and an out lesbian–though one who admittedly wasn’t “waving the pink flag” Schemel inspired fans while holding down the chaos of Hole’s live shows.
Numerous musicians and writers as well as Patty’s own band mates discuss her strength, feel, style, and grace as a drummer, as well as her importance as a cultural vanguard in Hit So Hard: The Life and Near Death Story of Patty Schemel. Tonight’s guests, director/producer/writer P. David Ebersole and writer/producer Todd Hughes, combined interviews with video footage Schemel shot and rediscovered to create a portrait of strength, talent and vulnerability, plus an inside look at the personal lives of some of the most influential cultural figures of 1990s.
