Herald Journal, 31 January 2003
For several years now the Logan area has felt the absence of alternative, arthouse cinema.
The recent opening of the Providence Stadium 8 theaters has now given Westates Theatres enough flexibility to to devote the Reel Time Theatre to art films. The name of the theater will even be changed to Logan Art Cinema.
The most recent source of art cinema in the Logan area was the Alternative Cinema club on campus, but the volunteer effort collapsed about 1996. Afterwards, Marty Spicer revived independent film showings for a time at the Main Theater in Smithfield.
