Sundance Expands

Hollywood Reporter has a piece about Sundance Cinemas purchasing San Francisco's Kabuki 8 Theatre. This moves forward the slow process of opening Sundance theaters around the country that will feature more artistic films than mainstream films. As far as I can tell, there is only one other location currently, and that's in Madison Wisconsin according to IndieWire.

I have to admit, I'm very cynical about any efforts to expand Sundance. I may be colored by watching the local community at my alma mater, The University of Pennsylvania, make a big deal for Redford and Sundance, only to watch the deal scurry away when money was discussed seriously. I remain unconvinced that Sundance Cinemas will ever have an impact on the film business, even if I agree that we need this sort of theater chain to thrive. --Terrence Ryan
