London: The hotel that inspired the famous author Stephen King to pen his novel ' The Shining' is all set to open a horror-themed museum.
According to a source, the owners of the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado are planning for the 24 million dollar development, which will include a museum, exhibition space, production facilities and editing suites, The Guardian reports.
The developers, who hope to run the centre as a non-profit public-private partnership, will work in collaboration with the Colorado film school to set up an educational programme and have asked 11.5 million dollar from the state.
