Through a few small changes, Salt Lake City is attempting to keep locals in town during Sundance, while also convincing Park City diehards to stop by. Although Sundance has always had a presence in Salt Lake City, this is the first year that a "festival district" has been officially declared downtown. The Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center has been chosen for the premiere of Kinky Boots this evening, and a number of restaurants, galleries, and businesses have extended hours and are offering festival specials. Salt Lake will screen about 100 films this year, in the hopes of relieving congestion in Park City. Salt Lake Tribune reports.
