What’s happening with the local movie theater situation maybe isn’t the stuff of Hollwyood, but it’s a drama that plays out in the evolution of a city, and that affects us all indirectly, if not directly. This is a story that may not have a happy ending like so many Disney movies have had at the State over the years. What if a new cinema isn’t completed, or if it is completed and can’t compete with the new Peru Roxy? Maybe then we’ll finally realize that more can and should be done to help downtown Logansport and its marquee – pun intended – property.
If it isn’t, then we may have seen “The Last Picture Show” in downtown Logansport.
