LGBT Documentary 'Upstairs Inferno' At Cinestudio

Cinestudio's monthly Second Thursdays series of LGBT-themed films continues with a documentary about a horrifying tragedy.

"Upstairs Inferno" tells the story of a New Orleans gay bar that was destroyed in an arson fire on June 24, 1973, killing 32 people. Rather than investigate the crime thoroughly, police ridiculed the victims for being gay.

It will be shown Oct. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the theater at 300 Summit St., on the campus of Trinity College in Hartford. Admission is $10, $8 for students.
