Best bets for the 2013 Sundance Film Festival for Thursday, Jan. 24:

"Toy's House"

3 p.m. • Eccles Theatre, Park City

Three high-school boys decide to withdraw from the world and build their own house in the woods, in this funny and engaging comedy.

"Escape From Tomorrow"

5:30 p.m. • Library Center Theatre, Park City

This surreal drama is getting talked about at Sundance because of how it was made: Filmed surreptitiously at Disneyland and Walt Disney World, without permission.


6:30 p.m. • Eccles Theatre, Park City

The last 24 hours in the life of Oscar Julius Grant III, the 22-year-old killed on a BART train platform in an incident that set off protests and riots, are chronicled in this moving drama.

Need a ticket?

P At 8 a.m., hit a Sundance box office (Trolley Square, 700 E. 600 South, Salt Lake City; Gateway Center, 138 Heber Ave., Park City; or Peery's Egyptian Theater, 2415 Washington Blvd., Ogden) to see if any tickets have been released to today's screenings. Or get in the wait-list line at the theater two hours before the screening. —
