Forty-three years before the horrific mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, an arson attack at French Quarter gay bar the Upstairs Lounge took the lives of 32 people. No one was ever charged in the crime, which was largely ignored by city officials in 1973. Director Robert L. Camina's award-winning 2015 documentary about the tragedy, Upstairs Inferno, will receive a four-day run at Chalmette Movies beginning this Saturday, June 25. The film will screen at 2 p.m on June 25-26 and at 7 p.m on June 27-28. More information and tickets are available here.
