Even as the sun shone today in Park City, the only thing that kept everyone going was the temperatures -- if they were outside, that is. 

It was a day to be inside and watch movies, which of course is what the Sundance Film Festival is mostly all about.  The other big Sundance draw is the party circuit, which journalists, filmmakers and party-hearty locals who are still around in this city of majestic mountains and narrow roads.

Still, there were those brave (or idiotic) souls who were seen gallivanting on these frigid streets with na'ary a winter coat to protect them. 

At night it was bitterly cold, and even after a film "Assassination of a High School President", a film which raised lots of guffaws at the Eccles Theater, the cold was simply too much to bear.
