Prince Rainier III documentary to be rolled out in cinemas across Monaco 

Following on from the sell-out success of the “Rainier III par Lui-Même” documentary screenings earlier this month, the Yann-Antony Noghès production is to be rolled out in cinemas across the Principality. 

The premiere of “Rainier III par Lui-Même” on 4th July at the Grimaldi Forum saw its creator met with a standing ovation and applause from the whole house, including the many members of the Princely family who had gathered to watch the touching documentary.

In the run-up to the opening night, it had already been decided that a second showing should be added, on 5th July, given the speed at which tickets to the first had sold out. Now, a list of further screenings has been announced, allowing even more people to watch and enjoy the film. 

“Rainier III par Lui-Même” will be shown at Monaco’s outdoor summer cinema site on 24th August. It will also be screened at the Cinéma des Beaux-Arts, found at 12 Avenue d’Ostende, on 7th September, 5th October and 2nd November. Finally, it will be the turn of the Théâtre des Variétés to host the intimate production on 25th October, 15th November and 18th December. 

The film uses personal sound recordings made by Prince Rainier himself to tell the story of his fascinating life in his own words. It was created by Check Productions, assisted by historians Thomas Fouilleron and Vincent Vatrican, and with the support of the Comité de Commemoration Rainier III.
