“Great theater.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

I visit the Sundance Film Festival every year and always try to get tickets to a show that is playing at this theater. There is not a bad seat in the house and it is small and intimate. They have snacks and a full bar in the lobby although alcohol cannot be taken into the theater. The decor is unique and the theater has a cozy feel to it. The seats are at a decent enough slant that only a really tall person would obstruct my view.

“Sundance Movie Chance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

SCORE! Tickets for "Fat Shaker" during opening days at Sundance. Loved the ambiance of the theatre, comfy seats, lovely details in this old theatre. (Wish the movie had lived up to the elegance of the Egyptian!)

“A quaint theater on Park City's main street”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

The Egyptian Theater is located in the historic downtown of Park City, UT. It is on the main street. During the year, there are a number of plays and comedy acts that perform there. During the Sundance Film Festival, it is one of the choice locations to feature films. The theater is small (my estimate is there are about 400 seats). The seats are a little dated. So, if you are planning on attending an event .... get the ticket(s) quickly especially if you think others will attend.

While the outside of the theater is unremarkable, the inside has great photos of artists that have attended the theater. The floor is granite and there is an "Egyptian" theme.

As for parking, there is no theater parking. You will need to park in one of several public garages located in the north end of the historic town. That said, these garages are no more than 10 minutes walking distance from the theater--assuming no snow or ice on the ground. As for restaurants--pre- pr post-performance-- there are plenty of them in town as well as boutique type shops (artsy stuff like pottery, paintings, photography, and fur shops).

“Great Venue!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

The Egyptian is a Park City Institution. Built in 1922 and refurbished in the mid 90's is a great venue. I have seen some great bands there and it is used heavily during the Sundance Film Festival! The park city performing arts use it for plays and it is also available for private parties! Great place to see music in an intimate setting!

“Charming, Historic Theatre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

The Egyptian is an intimate, historic theater that is a staple of Main Street. It offers an array of performances from musicals to plays to live music performances. The theater does a great job of having programming every weekend. The only downside is the entertainment often caters to the dinosaur crowd, especially the live bands they bring in from the 1960s and 1970s. It would be nice to have some entertainment that appeals to a slightly younger crowd.

Every seat in the small theater is a good one! And it's also a fantastic venue to catch a film during Sundance.
