Wonderful small local theatre for movies, plays etc. Enjoy a beer or wine and good popcorn. See friends and people you know in a more intimate setting than the usual movie atmosphere. Open to the traveler as we’ll

Great to have a local theater that has independent movie showings, along with some live ballet and cinema showings. What a gem, with fresh popcorn and real butter, wine and beer....WOW. We love to sit in the balcony.

What an icon of southern pines. The theater exudes history and that wonderful small town feel. The prices are so fair, the popcorn freshly made and not costing a mortgage payment. A plus...they serve wine and beer. Our favorite move place. We would rather support...More

We were lucky enough to be in town when the local Blues crawl was going on. The Sunshine Theater hosted a wonderful presentation by a band from Orlando and we had a great time.

This is definitely the place for the nostalgic among us. The theater offers discounted movie prices and live-streaming events in a friendly atmosphere that takes you back to the 50's and 60's. There's even a balcony still in use from this original movie theater structure....More

Small town theater that shows everything from live concerts (streamed from NYC) or movies that didn't quite make the big movie theaters. Inexpensive, roomy, and has popcorn. Located in close proximity to numerous restaurants.

I've been to the Sunrise a few times. It is a clean and comfortable old time theater. By that I mean like we went to when we were kids. None of the fancy reclining seats and multiple shows. There is one screen. They have things...More
