10-plex tapped for Park City

$7 million site to open spring 2001

With hordes of showbizzers jamming this year’s Sundance fest, organizers cheered Resort Theaters of America’s announcement Thursday that it plans to build a 10-screen theater complex near Park City, Utah.

The $7 million site, to be located a few miles from the Utah hamlet, is set to open in spring 2001. It will be the area’s first cinema with digital projection capability, and will boast stadium seating and THX sound.

“This is an exciting development for Sundance,” fest co-director Geoffrey Gilmore said. “The additional 10 screens will be invaluable in enhancing the festival experience for filmmakers and festivalgoers alike.”

RTA prexy Ron Leslie said the aim is to serve locals, tourists and festgoers in equal measure.

Since its start in 1998, RTA has either acquired or developed about 100 screens — all digital — in such areas as Aspen, Colo., and Palm Springs and Monterey, Calif.

Along with Leslie, a former prexy of AMC, RTA’s management team includes attorney Richard Lawrence and Brad Krevoy, a producer whose feature credits include “Dumb & Dumber.”
