The Cinema, Inc. offers the Triangle’s biggest entertainment bargain: 12 films for $20. That’s just $1.67 per film, which is only two cents more than the 1971 average U.S. movie ticket price of $1.65. The 2010-11 season of this nonprofit film society will begin on Sept. 12th, with “Don Juan DeMarco,” starring Marlon Brando and Johnny Depp.
