The 2024 Sundance Film Festival will be bringing back some ticket options exclusively for Utah moviegoers.
The Sundance Institute, the nonprofit arts group founded by Robert Redford, announced those options Wednesday — along with information about the venues and the logo for the event, which will mark the 40th year the institute has operated the festival in Park City and Salt Lake City.
The festival will run in person from Jan. 18 to 28, with online screenings from Jan. 25 to 28.
For Utah residents, three specific ticket options will be available:
• The Salt Lake City Youth Pass, for $225, for Utah residents between 18 and 25 years old. It provides unlimited in-person screenings and priority access to Salt Lake City theaters, Jan. 18-28.
• The Salt Lake City Pass, for $550, which offers full access to all in-person screenings in Salt Lake City, Jan. 18-28.
• The Locals Ticket Package, for $650, which includes 10 tickets to screenings in Park City and Salt Lake City over the festival’s run, Jan. 18-28.
Ticket packages will go on sale starting Oct. 18, with individual tickets on sale starting Jan. 11. Institute members and Sundance Circle donors, who support the institute’s year-round mission, can start purchasing passes and packages on Oct. 11, and have access to benefits not available to the general public.
Other details the institute released Wednesday included:
The logo and website
The 2024 festival’s logo is similar to the 2023 design, but with the “4″ slightly askew from the other digits in “2024.”
The festival’s website — festival.sundance.org — is up and running as of Wednesday. Those planning to attend can go there for ticket information, to find lodging through Sundance’s booking partners, and to get more information as it becomes available.
The following venues will be in use during the festival:
Park City • The theater venues will be: The Egyptian Theatre, 328 Main St.; Library Center Theatre, 1255 Park Ave.; The Ray Theatre, 1768 Park Ave.; Holiday Village Cinemas, 1776 Park Ave.; Eccles Theatre, 1750 Kearns Blvd.; the Prospector Square Theatre, 2175 Sidewinder Drive; and the Redstone Cinemas, 6030 N. Market St. (in Kimball Junction).
Other Park City venues include: Festival Headquarters at the Sheraton Park City, 1895 Sidewinder Drive; the Filmmakers Lodge, 550 Main St.; The Box at The Ray, 1768 Park Ave.; The Park, 950 Iron Horse Drive; and the Park City main box office in The Gateway Center, 136 Heber Ave.

No public screenings are planned for the Sundance Mountain Resort in Provo Canyon, a longtime screening venue. A festival spokesperson said some invited guest events and screenings will happen there.
Also off the list are five venues that screened movies in 2020, the last fully in-person festival before the COVID-19 pandemic hit: The Temple Theatre in the Temple Har Shalom synagogue in Park City; The Park Avenue at the DoubleTree by Hilton (formerly The Yarrow) in Park City; the Tower Theatre in Salt Lake City (which is still undergoing renovation); The Grand Theatre at Salt Lake Community College; and the auditorium at the Salt Lake City Library’s main branch.
