Daniel Kamil and Emily
Steffian have owned and operated the the Cable
Car Cinema and Café in Providence, Rhode Island since 2008.
Previously, they started The Revival House Cinema and Cafe, a fifty-seat
digital theater in Westerly Rhode Island that helped reinvigorate
an under utilized downtown.
Daniel and Emily spoke with us about the about
the current state of the independent cinema business based on their
own experiences over the years.
In March 2013, the Cable Car launched a Kickstarter Campaign to assist them
in the transition to digital projection, which all independent
cinemas are required to do to stay in operation.
