The Sunrise Theater is dedicating its marquee to The Class of 2020 for the next month. The theater wanted to do something special for graduates in the community, but with the doors closed since mid-March, the options were limited. Since the Sunrise marquee continues to light up NW Broad Street in Southern Pines while the theater is closed, the Sunrise decided to use its lights to congratulate the seniors.

Graduates are invited to have their photos taken under the marquee while obeying all group size (less than 10 people) and social distancing guidelines (six feet apart) at the Sunrise and Sunrise Park.

The marquee’s message will be dedicated to schools as scheduled:
May 13-20: Sandhills Community College
May 21-24: The O’Neal School
May 25-June 5: Pinecrest High School
June 6-11: Union Pines High School
June 12-14: North Moore High School
June 15: Class of 2020 (no school name specified)
June 16: STARS Charter
July 23-25: CLC at Pinckney

The marquee is available for private rentals for personalized messages. Contact the Sunrise at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for marquee rental prices and availability
