Tickets are $15, and can be purchased through Peery's Egyptian's box office, at 2415 Washington Blvd., Ogden. Ogden's final two films are sold out, but more people will get in through the wait-list procedure:
Be in line at the box office two hours prior to curtain, and get a wait-list number. Return when instructed, and available tickets will be sold in numerical order. The number of wait-list tickets available is determined by blocks of tickets released late by holders or by the festival, and by the number of ticket holders who change their plans and do not show up to claim their seats.
For screenings that are not wait-list shows, tickets will be on sale between noon and 5:30 p.m. today and Saturday at Peery's Egyptian Theater.

Ogden's Best of the Fest screenings, with titles to be announced this weekend on www.sundance.org, are at 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Monday at Peery's Egyptian Theater.
