At 7 p.m. March 11th, The Cinema, Inc. will screen a one-of-a-kind backstage documentary, “Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Inferno,” at The Rialto Theatre in Raleigh, NC. This may be the only time you will ever get a chance to see a director self-destruct during the filming of his never-finished magnum opus. In this case, an unlimited budget and a perfectionist temperament proved the undoing of celebrated French film director Henri-Georges Clouzot, who is best known for his classic nail-biters “The Wages of Fear” and “Les Diaboliques.”
The Cinema, Inc. of Raleigh, NC will screen 12 classic films for just $20 — that’s $1.67 each, which is the average movie ticket price for 1971. That makes the 2011-12 season of The Cinema, Inc. the Triangle’s biggest entertainment bargain.
