Georgia Girl in Park City

I want to take you on a guide to Sundance and fabulous Park City.

This is the Gateway center that houses the Queer Lounge & the Sundance Box Office. People began camping out there at 6PM to get first dibs on the few tickets released at 8AM the following morning.
This is inside the box office. We met a guy who lived in Atlanta at the box office that gave us a lot of insider tips and perks.

This is the outside of the Eccles Theatre. It seats 1,270 people. It is also the Park City High School's auditorium/theatre. Nice. Eccles is where all the big premieres happen.

This is my sister demonstrating a common practice at Sundance--waitlisting. Basically, you get to the theatre (only at Eccles and Prospector is the waitlist area indoors) and wait for hours (depending on how big the movie is and whether it is a premiere or not). Twice we waited 6 hours for a film no one go into off of the waitlist. (LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE & THE NIGHT LISTENER) But, both of these times we waited another 2.5 hours and got into the next film at the theatre (LUCKY NUMBER SLEVIN & THANK YOU FOR SMOKING). Whew.

This is a picture of the outside of the Egyptian Theatre. It's fairly small and only seats 266 people. The waitlist is outside here. We waitlisted and saw ALLEGRO & LA TRAGEDIA DE MARCARIO at the Egyptian.

This is just a pretty pic of downtown Park City. Oh, it is beautiful.

This is the view from our condo. Not bad, eh?

Me and a bunch of snow outside our condo!

Okay, that's all for now! I'm sure there will be more though!

Sounds like a great time, Julie. Glad you made it home safely, even if you're in need of some make-up sleep.

So, are you going to LA to see the movie?(the director sure is a QT) Nephele's neck of the woods, CA. And mine.

Look at all that snow! I've never seen that much snow in my entire life!! Then again, I suppose if I had to live in that kind of weather, I'd wish I were in the South (or somewhere warm)...

It looks like you're having a great time, Julie!
