With the mission of bringing the artistry of film to a wide, local audience, SLC Film Center screens the best of socially conscious documentaries, independent films, and drama free of charge to more than 22,000 Utah citizens annually. Moviephiles can support SLC with a membership purchase, granting access to SLC's free lending library and its catalog of hundreds of films guarded by a silent-film librarian who communicates only through placards and dramatic shushing gestures. Members can also take advantage of monthly pre-film receptions with light fare and big access to filmmakers and cinema lovers from across the community. Membership levels differ only in the number of tickets provided for each of six advance studio-film screenings yearly. The Cast membership includes one adult ticket to each advance screening, the Ensemble membership includes two adult tickets and two youth tickets to each advance screening, and the Crew membership includes four adult tickets to each advance screening. Check out SLC's calendar for information on screening times and movies that eerily mimic your morning commute via tricycle.
With 26 seasons under their belt, The Children's Theatre strives to inspire kids to express their creativity through entertaining, educational performances. Children stare as live performers act out the The Brave Little Tailor, an ancient Brothers Grimm fairy tale that reflects on modern troubles with a gentle lesson about bullying. In the story, a tailor strikes out into the world, only to run into a passing giant, who challenges the tailor to feats of strength such as squeezing water from a boulder or not crying while watching Brian's Song. Seating in the intimate, 99-person theater is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open a half-hour before performances so that audience members can snag spots in the front row or on a ticket taker's shoulders.
