Here is part of an article in the Zanesville Times Recorder dated 12/28/75:

Sunrise Cinema has opened all three of its theaters to good selections that ought to have appeal for every segment of the community. Its feature attraction is “Winterhawk,” an absolute must for serious movie fans. The panoramic splendor of the open west is set off in brilliant color and sparkling scenery to set the stage for a Blackfoot legend you will remember for a long time.

John Wayne and Katherine Hepburn star in the fun-filled Hal Wallis production, “Rooster Cogburn.” Burt Reynolds is featured in the movie, “Hustle.” All three are playing simultaneously from a single projector on three separate screens in three separate quarters of the new Sunrise Cinema managed by personable Charles Nassar who also runs the projector.

In 1979 I was involved in the installation of the projection and sound equipment for the two additional auditoriums. “DOLBY” CP-50 processors were added at this time. The cinema was owned by Duerson Theatres an independent circuit from Lancaster, Ohio

It was owned by Lancaster Cinema Inc which split into Duerson Theaters and Royal Enterprises Inc.

Duerson Theaters owned the cinemas in Galipolis, Wheelersburg and Lancaster (maybe some in Kentucky?).

Royal Enterprises owned the cinemas in Columbus, Zanesville, Chillicothe and Bellefontaine.
