Vail Film Fest organizers say theater closings not a problem

December 27, 2007 — Vail’s only two movie theaters closed down this year, but that won’t have a negative impact on the Vail Film Festival, event organizers said.

In an email to, event co-founder Sean Cross wrote the following:

“Fortunately for the festival the closing of the theaters will not have a significant impact on the event. Although the Cascade theater is no longer operating we will utilize the facility for the 2008 film festival and therefore we will see no negative impact there.

“Crossroads is a different story but again it won't be a big factor for us as we will use hotel ballrooms for our screenings, as well as the Vail Mountain School's theater, which is the largest theater in Vail and a beautiful space.

“As a film fan I'm saddened about the fact that Vail doesn't have any theaters. However, I'm optimistic about the future of film in Vail as I believe Solaris will have state of the art theaters and will hopefully open within the next couple of years.

“For people who love film we are putting together a great program for the 2008 Vail Film Festival and we hope to make up for the scarcity of theaters and films in the Vail Valley.”

The Festival takes place April 3 - 6, 2008 in Vail Village, Cascade Village, and the Vail Mountain School. Festival information can be found at”
