The Festival

The theatrical excitement of the Sundance Film Festival isn’t the only bit of cinema to get amped up about here in Park City.  February welcomes the Park City Film Series. This festival run by a non-profit film society presents a range of films guaranteed to delight any audience.  The festival includes everything from documentaries to international comedies and even some locally made drama. This film experience needs to be included in your Park City vacation plans as film is a fundamental part of the culture of Park City and the surrounding areas and is like a window to the world from right here in Utah.  It would be remiss of you to miss out on the artistic and cinematic genius of the Park City Film Series.

The Park City Film Series hosts thought-provoking films which are sure to please lovers of art-house cinema all over the world. You’ll also be able to check out some feature films by independent directors and those sure to be catching Oscar buzz. There are even films chosen for Park City’s youngest of audiences making attending the Park City Film Series a perfect activity for the entire family. The Series highlights films made in Utah and all over the world by creative directors with unique perspectives on modern life. With opportunities to experience motion pictures not normally available through commercial outlets in the Summit County area, this is a great addition to any Park City visit.

The Theater

Located just about a mile from your room at Park City Peaks Hotel, the Jim Santy Auditorium at the Park City Library Building is located in a historic building that used to be Park City’s High School. Now, it hosts a range of screenings throughout the year bringing modern and classic films to this beautiful historic building. With an intimate setting equipped to hold 400 guests, the screenings offer a unique way to catch up on Oscar films you might have missed or see a film by a director you wouldn’t have known about otherwise. With plans to upgrade the screen to a digital projector, the Park City Film Series will continue to lead the way in offering beautiful films to the Park City community.
