At drive-in theaters, the best seats are reserved for punctual elitists and fashionably late monster trucks. Avoid the perils of Hobbesian parking battles by settling into a cozy seat with today's deal: for $20, you get a yearlong membership to the Salt Lake Film Society, which screens films at Broadway Centre Cinemas and the Tower Theatre.
The Salt Lake Film Society promotes diverse, thoughtful film exhibition and supports film creation. It operates and maintains the historic Tower Theatre and Broadway Centre Cinemas, using those venues to screen artistic, American-independent, and foreign-language films, as well as to host events and programs that enrich the community. A yearlong membership to the SLFS at the Super 8 level provides numerous benefits, including two complimentary film admissions, four discount admissions, two free Tower video rentals, an SLFS T-shirt, priority purchase privileges for events, free admission to six annual members-only sneak peek screenings, and more.
Films are an extension of the natural human impulse for storytelling; in man's primordial days, lonely wanderers huddled around fires in the darkness and told tales of exploding robots fighting British children. Support this anciently rooted art form by supporting the SLFS. A membership helps the SLFS continue to host film festivals and screen talkies that would otherwise remain woefully underexposed. Check out the screening schedule to see what's up to bat, including films such as The Killer Inside Me (July 30), Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky (August 6), and the entirety of the SLC Film Festival (August 13).
- Tower Theater is completely cute, quaint, personal, yet very welcoming, open, and perfectly located!! – Myles A., for the Tower Theatre
- Honestly, this is the best place to check out a movie. Has your range of independent films with some mainstream stuff sprinkled in, and multiple theaters. – Mia C., for the Broadway Centre Cinemas
