1929 Sunset TheatreThings To Do -> History and Heritage -> Historic Landmarks (Asheboro)
The Sunset Theatre, a Spanish Colonial Revival-style theatre, was the first theatre constructed in Asheboro specifically to show "talking" movies. It was designed by Greensboro architect W. C. Holleyman, Jr. based on examples of "Moorish Pictures Palaces" popular in southern California. Cast-stone frieze decorations on both the exterior and interior feature helmeted soldiers and shields with a tile-roof awning capping the stuccoed facade.
