Originally a movie theatre built in1934, the Sunset Theatre has been a gambling house, town hall, and even a temporary morgue. Purchased in1999, the Sunset has been lovingly restored beyond its former glory to bring live professional theatre to the Cariboo - and it can still play movies!
Now in its 13th season of programming, the Sunset Theatre, operated by the Sunset Theatre Society has produced, presented, nurtured and developed dozens of professional productions from across the country and right here at home. What began as a mission to bring new Canadian plays to life against the remote and beautiful backdrop of the Cariboo Mountains has burgeoned into a year-round company. Since reopening its doors in 2006 the Sunset Theatre has presented over 50 professional theatre productions, have had 41 new plays come through our Exploration Series, produced 12 in house new plays, played host dozens of concerts, movies, rentals and much more - all with the goal of creating a sustainable year-round acting company producing world-class theatre in the heart of the Cariboo.
