NOW SHOWING

Temporary Closed

Showtimes

Showtimes will be announced once it is safe for us to reopen. 

Popcorn Pickup

Many are asking for more takeout popcorn, pop, certificates and candy, this makes for a fun family movie night. We will allow one person at the counter and one right inside the doors to make sure there is plenty of room for social distancing. The markers on the floor will help the flow of the foot traffic. We will have people enter on one side of the lobby and exit on the other. We also hope to have a couple of doors open so that people can just walk in and out.
Please bring something to put your items in for large orders.This is what many did before and it worked well. We will only allow one person per group. Please be prepared with your order. We ask that you have your order ready when you arrive which includes sizes, flavors, candy choices and if you want butter on our fresh delicious popcorn. We will not be selling the small bags of popcorn for this event.
Cash only.

Thank you. We hope you will continue to support us, every little bit helps.
Stay safe and healthy!

History of Sun Theatre

Where it All Began

Built by the Montgomery Family in 1947, the Sun Theatre became a landmark to the small town of Williamston Michigan, but in passing years would start to become rundown and unused.  In 1979, Russ and Carol Robitaille bought the theatre as it was abandoned and not operating.  After doing some much needed renovations, the Sun reopened it to the public in February 1980.  The charming one screen movie theatre became an iconic figure in the small town of Williamston, Michigan, where in 2001 was bought by Russ and Carol’s son and daughter-in-law, Dan and Lisa Robitaille.  

Keeping It In the Family

After 23 years of Russ Robitaille owning and operating the Sun, his son Dan Robitaille bought the theatre with his wife Lisa Robitaille in 2001. The family currently still owns the theater and hopes to keep the legacy in the family. In the left picture is Russ, Dan, and Cheryl behind the concession stands in 1980. In the right picture is Dan, Lisa, and their two children Madison and Danny in a picture that was featured in Business Monthly.renovations, the Sun reopened it to the public in February 1980.  The charming one screen movie theatre became an iconic figure in the small town of Williamston, Michigan, where in 2001 was bought by Russ and Carol’s son and daughter-in-law, Dan and Lisa Robitaille.  

Going Digital

In 2013, it was announced by movie companies that they would be phasing out 35mm film and fully convert to digital formatting.  The Sun was in a tough situation and turned to the public and their beloved patrons for help.  In just 50 days, the Sun’s fundraiser reached their goal of $60,000 where donors received different prizes based on their donation.
