Throwback Thursday! 

This Thursday, we bring you a close up of a glorious contact sheet from the Sundance Archives featuring the 1996 Sundance Film Festival. The first rows contain shots from a showing of Bound with an introduction by actors Jennifer Tilly and Joe Pantoliano. In the following row Joe poses alongside Bound costar Chrsitopher Meloni in front of the iconic Egyptian Theatre, before the new marquee was installed. Bound was the first film directed by the Wachowskis, the duo behind The Matrix series. The last row shows images from a screening of The Whole Wide World with an introduction from filmmaker Dan Ireland as well as actors Renee Zellweger and Vincent D’Onofrio.  

Take away: Det. Elliot Stabler and Det. Robert Goren were in Park City UT with their indie films at the same time just a few blocks away from each other!!
