The 2023 Sundance Film Festival is set to take place in person January 19 – 29, 2023.

There are Sundance Film Festival theater locations all across Park City. The Festival is a huge, decentralized event. There are hidden hotspots all over town. With so many venues, it helps to have a reliable Sundance Film Festival theater map. Feel free to borrow ours!

Read on to find every theater in town, along with a description of each screening location. Come prepared to get the most out of your Sundance Film festival experience!

Sundance Film Festival Map

Click the icon on the top left of the map to show more filters like shuttle routes and theaters!

Redstone Cinemas

Address:6030 Market St, Park City, UT 84098

Park City’s largest commercial theater pulls double duty as a Sundance Film Festival venue. During the festival, this Kimball Junction multiplex diverts several screens from the current box-office crop to festival darlings. It is also easily accessible by car. Large commercial parking lots surround it. As a dedicated movie theater, everything is set up for the perfect screening experience. No retrofitting necessary.

Temple Theatre

Address: 3700 N Brookside Ct, Park City, UT 84098

Temple Theater takes its name from the Temple Har Shalom, where the theater is located. Park City’s stately synagogue and Jewish Center opens its doors to Sundance Film Festival patrons each year. It screens Festival films in the attached auditorium. Temple Theatre has an almost academic atmosphere, perfect for rich introspection and thought-provoking cinema.

Located in the Snyderville area, this is one of the more remote venues. Plan ahead with your travel, especially since parking is not available for public use.

The MARC Theater

Address: 1200 Little Kate Rd, Park City, UT 84060

MARC stands for Municipal Athletics & Recreation Center. Hungry for more screens, the Sundance Film Festival converts the large indoor court of this rec center into a theater. It features plenty of space and excellent acoustics.

You might not be able to shake that “school assembly” vibe before the house lights go down. But you’ll be entirely engrossed in the screening once the film starts. This is a larger, auditorium-style venue with 550 seats. Located in a mostly residential neighborhood just outside the downtown area, transit is a necessity. There just aren’t enough places in the area to park if you drove yourself.

Eccles Theatre

Address: 1750 Kearns Blvd, Park City, UT 84060

Enjoy the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Center for the Performing Arts. This theater is one of the cornerstone venues for the Sundance Film Festival. It’s hard to believe this all just started as a high school auditorium. For more than 20 years, this beautiful hall has been home to hundreds of films, performances, concerts, and more.

This sizable two-story venue accommodates more than 1,200 individuals. That makes it the biggest hall in town. From the front row to the nosebleeds, you’ll enjoy a classic Sundance Film Festival experience during your screening.

Despite a high-school sized parking lot, there is no way to park anywhere near the venue during the festival. Thankfully, city and festival shuttles run through the Prospector Square area every few minutes. Use one of those.

https://www.parkcitymag.com/arts-and-culture/2017/12/stage-of-many-players

Prospector Square Theatre

Address: 2175 Sidewinder Dr, Park City, UT 84060

Prospector Square is a sleepy residential area on the outskirts of downtown Park City. The theater at its heart is a lovely convention center. It hosts everything from family reunions to weddings. But it becomes a bustling Sundance Film Festival venue each January.

This space becomes an intimate, comfortable theater for festival screenings. You won’t be sitting on plastic chairs lined up on an auditorium floor. Tiered theater seats and a lobby snack bar add to the cinematic experience.

You can find the theater just a short detour from the main highway on the cusp of downtown Park City. Grabbing a bus to the venue is a cinch. It is already a major transit stop on the city transportation system.

Holiday Village Cinemas

Address: 1776 Park Ave, Park City, UT 84060

Another commercial theater, this smaller multiplex has four screens with standard theater seating and amenities. During the Sundance Film Festival, it gives up some of its commercial film slots for Festival screenings.

The viewing experience is front and center here. The steep incline between rows ensures that you won’t be enjoying a first-class view of the back of some guy’s head. A full-service snack bar really helps you get into the cinematic mood.

It’s hard to miss the location of this theater, sitting right in a downtown shopping complex. Shuttles headed from Main Street or Kimball Junction all drive right by it.

The Ray Theatre exterior in Park City Utah

Holiday Village Cinemas

Address: 1768 Park Ave, Park City, UT 84060

This is the newest of the Sundance Film Festival venues. In fact, it used to be a sporting-goods store. The Sundance Institute has taken great pains to expand the derelict retail space into a state-of-the-art theatrical paradise.

It sports cutting-edge sound systems and comfy seats. The Ray Theatre is also the new VR exhibit space for the festival. These smaller VR spaces highlight the future of interactive entertainment.

The Ray is tucked in right next to the Holiday Village Cinemas in the same retail park. Use the same routes to access both venues.

Park Ave Theatre

Address: DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Park City, 1800 Park Ave, Park City, UT 84060

The Sundance Film Festival is always on the lookout for new venues. To expand its offerings and get more patrons in front of screens, the Festival converts some of the conference space in the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel into a theatrical auditorium. The space becomes a perfectly pleasant screening room for cinephiles. Every effort is made to help you forget you’re sitting in a hotel meeting area. They do a great job of selling a theater atmosphere given the constraints of the space.

Parking is for hotel guests only. Don’t bring your own ride. Grab a nearby shuttle or park-and-ride instead. It is easy. Just jump on any shuttle headed for the Ray Theatre or Holiday Village Cinemas. They all share a parking lot, right off Highway 224.

Library Center Theatre

Address: 1255 Park Ave, Park City, UT 84060

This is undoubtedly one of the coziest venues of the Festival. The Park City Library (which once served as the local high school) turns some of its space into a theater for the Sundance Film Festival.

It is home to small screenings and close seating. While you won’t find a lot of legroom here, you will have a great time seeing awesome movies in an intimate environment. The library is a beautiful building. It is even a great place to stand around in a waitlist line.

Sitting right in the downtown area, transit is much easier than some far-flung theaters.

The Egyptian Theatre on Main Street Park City Utah

Library Center Theatre

Address: 328 Main St, Park City, UT 84060

A familiar local landmark, the Egyptian Theatre is the true cultural lynchpin of Park City. The grandeur of the Egyptian Revival is on display in this gorgeous old theater. Catching a flick at the Egyptian is a major Park City bucket list item.

From the glitzy marquee to the pharaonic interior, this theatre is a symbol of the quirky character and grand aspirations of the Sundance Film Festival.

It sits proudly at the top of Main Street. Long may it reign over all other theaters from its literal seat on high.

No matter where in Park City your screening is located, All Seasons Resort Lodging has the perfect Park City Lodging for your stay. We have condos, townhomes, and vacation rentals near all Sundance Film Festival theater locations. Book from Main Street to Kimball Junction. Minimize your travel time and maximize your budget thanks to our Lowest Rate Guarantee.

Cattle roping at the Rodeo de Santa Fe

1. Rodeo de Santa Fe

Just as the summer starts in earnest, it’s time for the annual Rodeo de Santa Fe. The American West has a powerful association with the hard-riding, quick-roping cowboy tradition. And it’s all on display right here. The spirit of the Old West fills the rodeo grounds outside Santa Fe with bronco-busting, bull-riding, dirt-flinging excitement. Throw in plenty of carnival rides and a smorgasbord of food stalls, and you have the recipe for a rip-roaring rodeo of epic proportions.

Pouring syrup on Santa Fe pancakes on the plaza

2. 4th of July

Santa Fe loves America’s birthday. The most important meal of the day gets special treatment on Independence Day with Pancakes in the Plaza. You’ll find more than just flapjacks in the square on July 4. Classic cars, local art, and live music are on display for spectators to enjoy. And that’s just the start of the day.

Later, stop by the fireworks show. The festivities actually start several hours before the show, with live bands, food trucks, bounce houses, and all sorts of patriotic displays. Once the sun goes down, stay on for the main event. The fireworks show is the best in the state, with rich colors blooming over the desert landscape in a darkened sky.

3. International Folk Art Market

There’s a funny story behind the first of Santa Fe’s famous summer art markets. It was originally slated to be a one-off event back in 2004. It was such a smashing success that it has become part of the fabric of Santa Fe’s summer event schedule.

The market is a rich and colorful celebration of traditional arts from around the world. Honoring more than just the multicultural heritage of Santa Fe itself, this is a global event representing hand-made wares and arts from more than 100 nations. There is no better place to discover a new passion, connect with global traditions, and explore the works of master artisans.

More than just a market, each year’s schedule also includes a parade of artists, live folk music and dancing, lectures, and other outreach efforts. For two weeks of the year, Santa Fe becomes the crossroads of the world-a place where everyone can enjoy a community of skilled craftspeople from around the globe.

The Burning of Zozobra

6. The Burning of Zozobra

The annual burning of Old Man Gloom is one of Santa Fe’s most unusual traditions. Before fall approaches, a 50-foot marionette effigy erupts in flames, filled with tens of thousands of “glooms” submitted by the community. For almost 100 years, this massive inferno has consumed our problems and filled the night with grand spectacle.

What started as a 1924 event at an artists gathering has become a season-defining oddity that raises funds for the local Kiwanis Club and children’s charities. It has developed over the decades to become an almost ritual event involving a fire dance, a raucous celebration, and the burning of the effigy itself. Come fill Zozobra with your own gloom-divorce papers, pink slips, bad reviews, or whatever you please-or just dance and shout as Old Man Gloom goes up in flames. This is a unique event you won’t find anywhere else, and one that everyone should experience at least once.

Fiesta de Santa Fe

7. Fiesta de Santa Fe

The Fiesta is one of Santa Fe’s oldest celebrations. For more than 300 years, the City of Santa Fe takes to the plaza to celebrate its unique culture and achievements. The Fiesta Council signed a proclamation in 1712 declaring an annual celebration of the reconquest of New Mexico in 1692. Since then, this September festival has been a time of special significance for the denizens of The City Different, in one shape or another.

In fact, the Fiesta has had its share of ups and downs over the years, with the meaning of the celebration shifting over time to become a general celebration of Southwest heritage rather than a glorification of Spanish conquest. Two of the events already mentioned here, The Spanish Market and Zozobra, both spun off from the Fiesta over one disagreement or another.

In modern times, the event includes parades, an art market, delicious food, music and dancing, pageantry, and religious observance. It is one of the biggest parties of the year in Santa Fe, taking place each year on the weekend after Labor Day. Stop by and get the true Santa Fe experience during this centuries-long celebration.

Date: September 10-12, 2021
Location: Santa Fe Plaza
Price: Free

Santa Fe Wine and Chile Fiesta

8. Wine and Chile Fiesta

For five days each September, you are invited to enjoy the unique food and wine culture of New Mexico in this celebration of culinary excellence. More than 75 local restaurants and wineries partner to bring you the best in the Southwest. Events include dinners and luncheons, tastings, seminars, demonstrations, and cooking lessons. If you want to see what dining is all about in Santa Fe, this is the best place to start.

Park City Spring Break

With the Sundance Film Festival fast approaching, local expertise becomes an invaluable tool in the festival-goer survival kit. Madeline Knauer is a college student and Park City native who grew up attending films and being as much a part of the festival as possible. She attended Park City High School, where students spend the better part of the festival’s 10 day run in the heart of the action. Teachers at the high school often dedicate class time to help students get out and see the films being shown in the Eccles Center (one of the festival’s major viewing venues, which is attached to the high school), and many school clubs and volunteer programs are also involved with the festival. Needless to say, many young Parkites are fortunate enough to have a unique hands-on experience during Sundance Film Festival.

On average, 45,000 tourists and festival-goers come through the city during these 10 festival days, so things can get a bit hectic. Make no mistake-we love the increased excitement that comes with the festival and all its hustle and bustle. It never hurts to have a seasoned local’s tips on making the most out of your experience, which is why we sat down with Madeline this week to hear her perspective, festival “hacks”, and personal favorites for the Sundance Film Festival.

Speaker on Stage in front of a Crowd of Seated People

How would you describe the overall Sundance Film Festival experience in one word?

Chaotic!

If you had to guess, how many films have you seen?

Oh my, probably around 100.

Do you have a favorite?

Yes, Captain Fantastic from Sundance Film Festival 2016.

What is your number one tip for Sundance Film Festival newcomers?

Don’t expect to be treated special by the town. You really have to work hard to have a successful Sundance Film Festival.

Any “hacks” to make life a little easier during the festival, either for locals or tourists?

Take the bus everywhere and download the app that tells you the expected bus time so that you aren’t outside waiting in the cold for very long. Don’t try and eat during the busiest hours on Main Street, you’ll never find a table and restaurants raise their prices for the week. Waitlist as much as you can. Although having tickets to screenings is nice, those tickets are hard to come by. I have even gotten in from the waitlist on premier night.

What’s a local attraction that you don’t think gets enough attention from festival-goers?

The ski resorts. The hills are sometimes really empty during Sundance Film Festival and the snow is usually nice since it’s late January.

Favorite restaurant to go to during the festival?

My favorite is El Chubasco.

Any “must haves” to bring to the films or festival events?

Layers. Sometimes you will be waiting outside in the ticket line, especially at large theaters like Eccles.

Any last tips or things you’d like to add?

Ask locals for directions, especially the teens. They have the town figured out and know the buses better than their parents who drive cars around.

Speaker on Stage in front of a Crowd of Seated People

So there you have it! Take advantage of the bus system and consult the locals, especially for directions. Also, be sure to enjoy restaurants that are more low profile (but still delicious) like El ChubascoSammy’s Bistro, and Vessel Kitchen. Waitlisting is your best friend during the festival. Be sure to squeeze in some time on the slopes during lighter film days-it can be one of the best times to ski all year. But, most of all, enjoy all the wonderful craziness that comes along with the Sundance Film Festival!
