Summit County’s only Art House Cinema, which was conceived of as the Park City Film Series back in the mid-90’s, has now grown into a new name: Park City Film.
For the past 23 years the Park City Film Series has been the home for Art House films year round in Park City. As with most things, we think that we have gotten better with age, and in our third decade we have refined our mission and expanded our programs. Now you’re just as likely to see Bill Nye on the screen inspiring Gen Z’ers as you are to bump into Baby Boomers and Gen X’ers dissecting Ziad Doueiri’s “The Insult.”
What hasn’t changed over time is our passion for independent cinema and our commitment to use film to bring our community together. Our Reel Community Series ignites conversations about issues that our community members and sister non-profits care about and it has grown exponentially in the past five years. We now have four film series for the school-aged crowd – Foreign Cinema…for Kids!, the School Break Film Series, Books 2 Movies and the STEM Education Film Series. And new this season, we’re showcasing the performing and fine arts through our Art on Screen series and, based on the success of our Filmmakers Showcase, we now have a Made in Utah Film Series for feature length films made by Utahns or in the State of Utah.
By expanding the audiences that we serve, we feel that we’ve become more than a weekend film series. So, Park City Film is an umbrella under which all our great film programs can co-exist, thrive and be enjoyed by all!
But don’t worry, we’re still the only movie theater in town where you can leave with a loaf of bread from the raffle, and fill your own bowl with popcorn and whatever tempts you at the toppings bar. Whether you were born in Park City, just moved here, or are in town to enjoy our incredible mountains, Park City Film will still be your spot for world-class independent cinema in a community setting. Some things never change…
