The historic Sunrise Theater is situated on Broad Street in Southern Pines, NC. Having already served the community in various capacities, the theater now functions as a cultural center for the community, featuring concerts, plays, movies, and other events. The building, built in 1898, began as a hardware store. In September 1941, the building became a movie theater which remained a staple of downtown Southern Pines for over 40 years.
When the movie house closed its doors permanently in the early-1980’s, the Arts Council of Moore County (ACMC) and the Sandhills Little Theater rallied enough community support to restore the building and give it a third life as the Performing Arts Center, owned and operated by ACMC.
In 1998, ACMC transferred the theater’s operation to the Sunrise Preservation Group (SPG), citizens concerned with keeping the theater alive for the community.
The theater shows nightly features, primarily dedicated to recently-released independent films.
