Salt Lake City, UT 84105
As summer brings us those long sunshine-filled days, Utah Film Center is excited to announce the return of its Free Outdoor Summer Film Series at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City. Pull out your favorite blanket, grab those delicious treats, and enjoy the long-awaited soft warm breezes of a perfect Utah summer night.
Each week will take you on an epic journey — riding whitewater in the world’s deepest canyon, help a fearless shell look for its home, swoon with comic book nerds looking for love, and take risks with a big-hearted Australian environmentalist who has even bigger fishy friends. We’ll also be exploring the magic of cinema with legendary rock and soul icons, two volcanologists, and a breakdance crew that is hotter than a St. George day in August.

Marcel The Shell With Shoes On
Marcel is an adorable one-inch-tall shell who ekes out a colorful existence with his grandmother Connie and their pet lint, Alan. Once part of a sprawling community of shells, they now live alone as the sole survivors of a mysterious tragedy. But when a documentary filmmaker discovers them amongst the clutter of his Airbnb, the short film he posts online brings Marcel millions of passionate fans, as well as unprecedented dangers and a new hope at finding his long-lost family. A beloved character gets his big-screen debut in this hilarious and heartwarming story about finding connection in the smallest corners.
