The Salt Lake Film Society aims to bring smaller films to the Salt Lake community that might have otherwise had difficulty finding a venue in the area. It operates out of two venues, the Tower Theatre and the Broadway Centre Cinemas, both of which are put into service every year as official venues for the prestigious Sundance Film Festival. The Tower Theater is particularly interesting; prior to its 1950 renovation, it was modeled after the Tower of London. (Rest assured it still has a lot of retro chic.) The Tower also maintains a film library and rental area.
The Film Society’s “Overlooked Films of the Year” series presents lesser run titles from Sundance, and its “Artists in Film” series invites indie actors, writers, and directors to the theater to talk about their latest projects. It also runs the annual Salt Lake City Film Festival each summer, along with a number of smaller festivals throughout the year.
