The Pinehurst Area has a great little place called the Sunrise Theater and they need your support. This week come see the movie production of Casino Jack from Feb. 17 – Feb. 21. Call for details 910-692-5801
The Sunrise was originally built as a hardware store in 1898 and became a movie theater around 1940. It stayed a theater for about 40 years then closed it’s doors. Some thought permanently. It was reopened in the 1990’s by the Arts Council of Moore County and then transferred to the Sunrise Preservation Group in 2005 and is managed and owned by them to this day.
Near Pinehurst – the Sunrise is located on Broad St. in the downtown area of Southern Pines. Its event calender is a mix of off mainstream films, some mainstream films, live shows and most recently added the HD Live performance of the opera at the Met.
These live performances are telecast either once or twice a month. In addition to the live telecast of the opera – an encore performance is played once a month or so. Unfortunately I have heard if the attendance doesn’t increace they will have to cancel the encore presentations. For more information on the Sunrise Theater please call them at 910-692-5801.
And if you are looking for entertainment in the Pinehurst/Southern Pines area the Sunrise Theater offers many great options.
