Providence’s Cable Car Cinema recognized by Sundance Institute
The theaters chosen “embody a benchmark of excellence in programming, community involvement and operations.”
The Sundance Institute’s Art House Convergence has recognized Providence’s Cable Car Cinema among its first class of Art House Project theaters, those “that embody a benchmark of excellence in programming, community involvement and operations.”
The group said in a news release Tuesday that the 23 theaters recognized applied for the designation and “were found to meet high standards including: quality programming, deep involvement with their local communities, strong financial standing, and recognition from their peers and their communities.”
The Sundance Institute was founded in 1981 by actor-director Robert Redford. Art House Convergence began in 2005 as the Sundance Institute Art House Project, celebrating 25 leading U.S. art-house theaters. A few years later, this grew into the independently run Art House Convergence, designed to empower and inform independent cinemas nationwide.
