Spirits rise for new film series

Posted By on Sat, Oct 6, 2012 at 8:00 AM

In time for Halloween — and beyond — the University of North Carolina Charlotte College of Arts + Architecture and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Library have teamed up to present Spirits Rise: A Ghost Film Series, a program inspired by two books by UNCC Department of Theatre professor Dr. Mark Pizzato (Ghosts of Theatre and Cinema in the Brain and Inner Theatres of Good and Evil: The Mind’s Staging of Gods, Angels and Devils).

The series kicks off with a screening of the 1961 classic The Innocents, an adaptation of Henry James' The Turn of the Screw (with a screenplay co-written by Truman Capote). Deborah Kerr is excellent as the governess employed at what she suspects might be a haunted mansion. Free admission. Oct. 6, 2 p.m. ImaginOn, 300 E. 7th St.
