Over the past year and a half, COVID has changed the world. But what remains more relevant than ever is the ability of art, and film in particular, to deepen our understanding of other cultures and communities and create an opportunity for collective human engagement. Park City Film has worked hard since the advent of COVID to re-imagine how we bring our community together to laugh, cry and be transported by stories on the Big Screen.

  1. *In the summer months, the Twilight Drive-in has become the place to be for film lovers of all ages. We've reached over 20,000 film lovers over the past 2-seasons at the Drive-in and brought a new twist to a classic form of movie watching.  
  2. * Our Virtual Cinema has enabled us to expand our programming as well as provide greater flexibility for our patrons to watch films and post-film panel discussions from the comfort and safety of their home theaters. 

    * After our 12-month closure, we are thrilled to back to showing films in the historic Jim Santy Auditorium! We returned to the Santy in February 2021 to the delight of film lovers. First with private screenings to test the waters and are now open for each weekend to the general public with a curated slate of independent, foreign language and documentary films. We are currently operating at 40% capacity - but at 150 seats, that still leaves lots of room for our film loving community members to come back to the cinema!

 Thanks to a generous matching grant from the Promontory Foundation your donations on Live PC Give PC will be matched and used to support us through this challenging time and as well as help fund our free community programs including the Reel Community Series, Made in Utah Film Series and Foreign Cinema for Kids. Your support for us comes back to the community in spades - so everyone wins!

What We Do...

Park City Film is Summit County’s only nonprofit Art House Cinema. Established in 1995, Park City Film is a vital, contributing member of the local arts community - enhancing the cultural life of our community for both locals and tourists seeking diverse cultural opportunities. We accomplish this through the presentation of a curated selection of independent, foreign and documentary films in the historic Jim Santy Auditorium, pop-up locations such as the Twilight Drive-in at the Utah Olympic Park and via our Virtual Cinema. Additionally, we program post-screening Q&A’s and panel discussions to deepen our patrons understanding and engagement with the issues raised by the films we show; partner with local non-profits to offer free community screenings that help raise the profile of our partner organizations’ missions through film; provide special programming for children to enhance literacy skills and promote cross-cultural understanding; and, provide opportunities for Utah filmmakers to hone their craft as well as showcase their work on the big screen. 


Our vision is to create an engaging and affordable arts experience for people of all ages and backgrounds - using film as a medium to entertain, inspire and educate our patrons and help Summit County remain a well informed and engaged mountain community. Our mission is to create community through film.
