News About This Theater
Opened on May 1, 1924, the 1,200 seat Sunshine Theatre was designed by El Paso architect Henry C. Trost, and was Albuquerque’s first big movie palace. By the early-1940’s it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Hoblitzelle & O'Donnell.
It continued to operate as a movie theatre into the 1980’s, and has recently been reborn as an all-ages night club, with an over-21 bar in the former balcony and a second bar called the Moonlight Lounge in one corner of the main floor.
