Located in Wells BC, Canada, the Sunsest Theatre opened in December of 1934. It was originally built to entertain the gold miners of nearby Barkerville. In its hey-day the Sunset Theatre played host to movies, live performances and town hall meetings. In not so fortunate times it has been a gambling hall, and some say even a morgue.

Today the Sunset is being restored with the goal to attract artists from all over the world to entertain the community and visitors of Wells once again.

Hi all, I am new to the site and looking for help. I am a researcher on a book dealing with cinema in British Columbia. I would love to include reminiscences about specific theatres, photos, or any information about how film and theatres in general affected your life and/or community. This would include rented films, documentaries from libraries, as well as local theatres or film study groups. Any information you would like to share would be most welcome.

Anyone interested can contact me at

Thanks for sharing your love of movies!
