As with previous years passed, the 2012 Sundance Film Festival will once again be bringing the magic of independent film to select cities across the country as Sundance Film Festival USA will take place on January 26th, the second Thursday of the festival. Filmmakers will leave the festival in Park City, Utah to present their film and hold a Q&A in one of nine select cities across the country. An introduction video with highlights from the fest will precede each screening to give people a real taste of Sundance, even if they're hundreds of miles away. Of course, the films involved won't be announced until December with the line-up.
Here's the official list of theaters hosting Sundance Film Festival USA in 2012 via the official press release:

Tickets for each screening will be available through the theatre's box office close to the event next year. John Cooper, Director of the Sundance Film Fest, states: "Every year, our goal with the Sundance Film Festival is to make it an extraordinary event for those who attend, and with Sundance Film Festival USA, we're bringing the Festival experience to independent film lovers nationwide. In many cases, those audiences feel a connection to independent film because of the year-round work of their hometown theatres. Sundance Film Festival USA shows both our gratitude to these theatres for their contributions to the independent film community as well as our support and commitment to helping them grow their existing audiences." Hopefully these Sundance cities will allow some of you guys to catch films early next year.
