Series picks ‘The Jane Austin Book Club
Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 6 p.m., the Park City Film Series will present "The Jane Austin Book Club." In its film synopsis, the series directors write that this film "shows that contemporary society is still every bit as preoccupied with the complexities of marriage, friendships, romantic entanglements, position, and social manners as was Jane Austin at the turn of the 1800s. The lives of a group of friends are revealed through the witty prism of their literary heroine. The book club meets over friendly drinks and fancy dinners to discuss and debate each of Austin’s classics, opening themselves up in the process to new challenges and friendships. Over time the six members find echoes, predictions, warnings and wisdom about their own personal and romantic lives within Austin’s beloved narratives and characters." Tickets are $7 with discounts for seniors and students. The screening will take place at the Jim Santy Auditorium located at 1255 Park Ave.

Get a ticket: Broadway star to perform at Eccles
January 5 at 7:30 p.m., see Savion Glover. A Broadway star by the time he reached adolescence. Savion Glover has performed with and, by some accounts, eclipsed some of the world’s most famous dancers. He took Salt Lake City by storm at the 2002 Winter Olympics Closing Ceremonies, and his passionate affair with funk-ridden tap has accounted for multiple successes throughout the musical theater community, including a Tony Award for his performance in "Bring in ‘Da Noise, Bring in ‘Da Funk." Glover will perform at the Eccles Center on 1750 Kearns Blvd. Tickets are available at the box office Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or online at http://www.ecclescenter.org .
