Resort Theaters Of America (RTA) - the recently established cinema circuit which has to date bought, built or identified over 100 screens in US resorts - has teamed with The Sundance Film Festival to build the RTA Theater in Park City, Utah, home to the festival.

The $7m, 10-screen site will have a significant impact on the festival when it opens in spring 2001 in time for Sundance 2002 and the Winter Olympics, which are taking place in Feb 2002. Located in the Redstone Retail Center minutes away from Park City, it will also include space for seminars, conferences, private screenings and special events.
