Soon the marquee lights on the State Theatre in downtown Logansport will shine a bit brighter.

The carpets already smell freshly shampooed. Cup holders have been wiggled between some of the seats, and the price of candy and popcorn have dropped.

The longtime theater, as well as Logansport’s [Skyline Drive In], is being looked at by a new set of eyes.

They are the eyes of a lifelong entrepreneur and Hoosier, and of a man whose company, Alger Motorsports, is 10th in the world right now for NASCAR Camping’s World Truck Series. They are the same eyes who, in 2007, saw opportunity in a vacant movie theater — Ritz Cinema in Rensselaer — and remodeled and reopened it.

They are the eyes of Bill Alger, a 43-year-old man driven by perfection and with a vision to turn Logansport’s longtime downtown staple into a first-class movie experience.

“I know what I would like to see when I come to a theater,” Alger said. “I’ve listened to all of the nice people who have said what they’d like to see, as far as the concession stand being open longer and cup holders ... I know how I like to be served. I know that I like a bargain.”
