“Nice local cheap movie outlet for indie flicks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

Went on a recent Sat night and it was packed. It"s in the library and definitely has a local homegrown feel. But its a legit movie screen and sound system. nice if you are looking to get out of some nasty weather. Tip: bring your own bowl and get a discount on the popcorn!

“Great Indie Films and Bottomless Bowl of Popcorn!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

The volunteers at Park City Film Series do a terrific job of selecting films for screening. They are clearly a vibrant part of the community and are devoted to sharing quality films with the local area.

In addition to their regular weekend screenings (usually one film is screened each night of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) they offer special screenings of interest to the area population and this season they added a free children's series at well.

Clearly the Sundance Film Festival fuels a lot of interest among locals, and serves as a great source of films and information.

While ticket prices are not bargain-basement (roughly about $8 per ticket for most films) you are treated well and local flavor abounds, including door prize drawings before most screenings (there has always been one when we've gone).

The concessions are very generous. A local coffee company provides FREE coffee, and it's quite good. You can buy popcorn for about $3 a bowl, but it's bottomless--just come back and get a refill. To help save the environment, you may also bring your own bowl, or purchase a reusable one from PCFS.

The library facility is nice and comfortable with generally good visibility.I am quite vertically challenged, so that's always a very important issue for me.

Most important, though, is the quality of films they offer. Rarely do they disappoint, and we've been able to see some great films we couldn't get into during Sundance.

We actually will drive up from Salt Lake City, spend a weekend afternoon exploring outdoors nearby, have dinner and then take in a movie. Fun date night for us.

Viewing indie films will really get you hooked, and we actually go to them in Salt Lake City as well.
