The one thing that truly keeps the Sunset Theatre alive is its motto: "We exist for the Artist." Without the artist there is no reason to be here. It is you the artist that has made the place what it is and what it will become. Your dedication, talent, creativity, tenacity and spirit has filled these walls with a love and inspiration to last a life time.
has been an honour and a privilege to have had some amazing artists
come to the Sunset Theatre to perform, create and enjoy all the we have
to offer. Without the continued support of these amazing people, even in
spirit, the Sunset Theatre would not have a purpose. So a sincere
heart-felt thank you to all of you.

The First Annual Moonrise Film Festival:
Our first year is now complete!
Thank you for joining us during three eclectic nights of potent and independent filmmaking. It was a joy to share digital and 16mm films with you inside the historic Sunset Theatre. And a special thanks to the 10 filmmakers who were able to attend this year to speak about their films! We hope to continue this tradition in years to come.
