Cinema Inc Announces its 48th Season

Cinema, Inc. Offers Triangle Filmgoers 12 Classic Feature Films for $20 — That’s Just $1.67 Each

The Cinema, Inc. will open its 48th season on September 8, 2013 with Cool Hand Luke and Paul Newman.

The 48th season of The Cinema, Inc. will feature an international array of cinematic masterpieces, chosen for their intellectual substance, aesthetic appeal, and ability to stimulate lively discussions. “Sunday Night at the Movies” will start at 7 p.m. on Sept. 8th, 2013 with the 1967 American classic film Cool Hand Luke with Paul Newman. Altogether, the Raleigh, NC-based nonprofit film society will screen 12 feature films — and assorted short subjects, as time permits — for just $20. That’s only $1.67 per movie – which makes the 2013-14 season of The Cinema, Inc. the Triangle’s biggest entertainment bargain.

The group screens 12 movies annually — at 7 p.m. on the second Sunday of each month — at The Rialto Theatre, 1620 Glenwood Ave., Raleigh, NC 27608 (near Five Points).
