Once again, Peery's Egyptian Theater boasts state of the art technology, including the restored atmospheric lighting which resembles a setting desert sun evolving into a sparkling night cosmos. The modern stage house is designed to accomodate live theater, dance, choral, symphonic and multimedia performances as well as film. The theater is now home to a performance series, a film series and is a screening venue for the annual Sundance Film Festival.
