Park City, UT is the home to the Sundance Film Festival. The Egyptian Theater is the largest theater in town, modeled after the same-named theater in Hollywood. Sex, Lies, and Videotape and Reservoir Dogs (and countless other independent films) secured their financial futures at this theater.

Robert Redford originally wanted to open up a ski resort near Park City with the land he had purchased. However, the elevation is below the snow line, so he needed to come up with another scheme. The Sundance (named after his character in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) empire was born.
