Sunrise Theater Presents 'Sunshine Cleaning'
The Sunrise Theater's Sunflix Series presents "Sunshine Cleaning" Thursday, May 14, through Monday, May 18.
The comedy/drama features a stellar cast including Academy Award-nominee Amy Adams ("Enchanted"), Golden Globe-winner Emily Blunt ("The Devil Wears Prada"), Oscar-winner Alan Arkin ("Little Miss Sunshine"), as well as Steve Zahn and Clifton Collins Jr. The film is directed by Christine Jeffs.
Once the high school cheerleading captain who dated the quarterback, Rose Lorkowski now finds herself a 30-something single mother working as a maid. Her sister, Norah, is still living at home with their dad, Joe, a salesman with a lifelong history of ill-fated get-rich-quick schemes.
Desperate to get her son into a better school, Rose persuades Norah to go into the crime scene clean-up business with her to make some quick cash. In no time, the girls are up to their elbows in murders, suicides and other "specialized" situations. As they climb the ranks in a very dirty job, the sisters find a true respect for each other, and the closeness they have always craved finally blossoms. By building their own improbable business, Rose and Norah open the door to the joys and challenges of being there for one another -- no matter what -- while creating a brighter future for the entire Lorkowski family.
The weekday showings are at 7:30 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 and 7:30. The comedy/drama is rated R and runs 92 minutes.
The historic Sunrise Theater, located at 250 NW Broad Street in Southern Pines, is nonprofit. Ticket prices are $7 for evening shows and $6 for matinees. Refreshments, including beer and wine are available, and all movies are commercial free.
