PARK CITY, Utah ( TheStreet) -- Normally you'd expect a town to peak with its Olympic moment, but not so with Park City. It's been thriving long since hosting the 2002 Winter Olympics, thanks to the Sundance Film Festival making it ground zero for the world's movie business every late January.It's essentially a mountain marketplace where Hollywood producers and indie filmmakers meet to talk distribution deals. Sundance success stories include The Blair Witch Project, Little Miss Sunshine and Saw -- all bought here and turned into box office hits. The flood of film between Jan. 20-30 means there's a movie ticket for everyone who puts forth the effort. While the deadline for advance tickets has long since expired, the Sundance website sells individual tickets on a first-come, first-served basis for select screenings up to 36 hours before showtime.
|Talisker on Main has become the Park City, Utah, eatery not to miss, and it's sure to packed solid with stars and wannabes until the Sundance Film Festival ends Jan. 30.|
