After a hard day of skiing, snowboarding snow shoeing, you might not want to do anything too physical. You might just want to sit back, relax and be entertained. There are many options for you to choose from whether you’re looking to watch a movie or experience culture in one of our Park City Theaters.
The Cinemark Holiday Village 4 is one of three major Park City movie theaters. It has four screens and shows first-run movies. The Redstone 8 Cinemas is an eight-screen multiplex which has a number of interesting features to make it a family-friendly place. Waiting for the flick to begin, you can sit comfortably in some love-seats, there is a cry room for your finicky child, as well as a play area, a video arcade and a lobby café. The Park City Library Center is home to the Jim Santy Auditorium – a non profit art house cinema. This movie venue is often used for community screenings of movies such as Dirt! and also for special screenings of second-run movies such as Academy Award winners. The Prospector Square Theater is a part of the Prospector Square Lodge and Conference Center, and is often used for screenings during the Sundance Film Festival.
You just can’t say “movies” in Park City without also speaking about the Sundance Film Festival and the Sundance Institute. The institute was founded by Robert Redford in 1981, and its annual festival is the American and International Independent Film Festival. Numerous movie houses in the area open their doors just for Sundance. The Temple Theater is one such venue, as is the Prospector Square Theater.
If you’re looking to find something maybe a bit more cultural, you might want to check out the Eccles Center for Performing Arts. At this theater, you can enjoy musical concerts of almost any genre, as well as dramatic and dance performances. Just to give you a taste of what has come before, artists such as Winona Judd, Earth Wind and Fire, Jewel and Jeff Daniels have performed here. The Pilobus dance troupe recently performed here. The Egyptian Theater in Park City is a landmark venue which has been around for more than one hundred years. This historic building is home to a variety of live theater performances, musical acts and community fundraisers. When you’re visiting Park City, be sure to visit this historic venue and check out the incredible architecture, inspired by the discovery of King Tut’s tomb when it was built back in the 1920’s.
If you happen to be looking for a night of laughter, don’t look any further than the Desert Star Playhouse.

The only thing that’s sure is that you’ll leave laughing!
