Friday Night Family Flicks at Snowbird

In 1981, Robert Redford carved out a space in Utah’s mountains for the independent film maker. Today the “Sundance Institute remains committed to its mission to discover and develop independent artists and audiences across the globe.”  Each January, Park City, Salt Lake City and Sundance Resort host the Sundance Film Festival where the big screen meets the mountains.  Fortunately, there are plenty of summer screenings under the mountain sky.  Watching a movie on under the mountain stars is a unique experience, one worth checking off the bucket list.  Picnic baskets are welcome, so be sure to bring the popcorn.  Sit down and catch a film under the summer sky here:
