Blythe's lone film critic has resigned because the community's only movie theater has made it impossible for her to meet her newspaper's deadline.

A private four-year university program will remain open one more year instead of closing this summer as planned, officials said Tuesday.

Blythe's lone movie house has offered to let the local newspaper's film critic back inside to review movies--but only if the Palo Verde Valley Times agrees to print reviews by a second critic working for the theater. The California desert community's only newspaper rejected the proposal Friday, calling it a "dumb idea."

Movie critic Cathy Monnett had just taken a seat in the aging red brick theater to review the latest film to play at the only movie house in this desert community near the Colorado River. But even before "Gorillas in the Mist" began to roll, the theater manager approached, handed back her money and asked Monnett to leave. The reason: the theater owner had decided that Monnett's reviews were too negative and bad for business.
