There’s a photo of the Sunset Theatre as The Flick at upper left on this page of The Architectural History of Randolph County North Carolina.

The minutes of a 2010 meeting of the Randolph County Historic Landmark Preservation Commission contains a lengthy report on the Sunset Theatre, which was being considered for landmark designation. The document available as a PDF.

The report says that the Sunset Theatre was designed by architect William C. Holleyman, Jr.. The Commission voted to approve the designation of the Sunset Theatre as an official local landmark.

During the 1970’s Asheboro also had the Asheboro Cinemas 1 & 2(which is not listed on this site but will be very soon)that were several theatres that served the communities of Randolph County and the surrounding area.

This is a nice theater that could be a great asset to this small town. I recently attended the film series to see inside. The interior is worn but looks to be mostly original. The outside has the potential to be one of the best buildings in town but it needs some attention and its marquee returned. The style is Spanish both inside and out. The balcony has good sight lines but the lobby is very small. I think the city is looking to use the vacant building next door to help make theater operations better – both for an expanded lobby and back of house needs. The Parks and Rec department puts on the film series and it was nice. It was done on 16mm which is better than video projection but it would be nice to see 35mm projectors at some point in the future.
