We saw a lot of businesses close there door in 2020. Whether they closed for a month, or a year, COVID-19 put a big strain on the work force here in Michigan.

One of the business that we saw close their doors, was The Sun Theater in Grand Ledge, which closed their doors like most cinemas did back in 2020. Since then, the Sun Theater has set idle since March of 2020, waiting to entertain the local community.

The Sun Theater has some history in the Grand Ledge area as well, first opening their doors back in the early 1900's, and serving as a getaway for people during The Great Depression.

With their grand-reopening, WSYM is saying, we will get to see a locally made movie that was shot right here in Lansing. The film also features actors, mainly volunteers, both out of the Lansing area and others from around the country.

The movie that will be shown, is "Thorn in the Center of the Heart." This new movie was written by Thang Mung, who was a refugee from Burmese. The movie is in honor of Mung's brother, who Mung said passed away at a young age.

You can catch this movie multiple times during the month of September, but the first showing will be on Friday Sept. 3 at 7:15 pm. The movie isn't very lengthy either, which might make for a good date night, only being an hour and 22 minutes. 

If you're interested in buying tickets before the show, you can do so by heading here.
