PARK CITY, Utah. — The Sundance Film Festival has cancelled plans for in-person film screenings at local Park City theater The Ray, shifting to online-only. The decision came after the festival looked carefully at all the satellite theaters scheduled to hold in-person screenings nationwide, and determined it wasn’t advisable to hold in-person events there.
The Sundance Film Festival said in a statement, “The safety and well-being of our audiences, community, and staff is the most important thing to us. In consideration of the overall public health situation in Utah – a month out from the festival – we will be pivoting our planned indoor theater screenings at The Ray to our online platform.”
