The Scottsdale International Film Festival, long held at the Harkins Camelview 5 theater, is moving to the Harkins Shea 14.
Organizers say the move is a boost because of increased parking, amenities, indoor lineup room and more screens.
“There are dozens of eateries within walking or driving distance, and all of the theatres now have The Harkins Ultimate Rocker high-back, rocking seats in every auditorium,” said festival director Amy Ettinger in a statement. “And this one’s the clincher: the Festival has more screens to show more films.”
A spokesman I contacted says the move will not result in price increases for single ticket sales, but there will be a “slightly higher” charge for VIP passes due to an increase in the number of screens and, therefore, films. The festival will take place Sept. 30 to Oct. 4. Titles and more information will be announced in August.
The theater is at 7354 E. Shea Blvd., at the northeast corner of Scottsdale Road and Shea.
