Suns Cinema hoping to come to Mt. Pleasant has launched their kickstarter:

“After years of searching for a suitable venue, we’ve signed a lease for a space ideally located on Mt. Pleasant street, just a few blocks away from the Columbia Heights Metro Station.

And, while the space is great, it’s going to require a lot of work. The location was previously set up for retail and will have to be totally repurposed for use as a theater. As with any theater, we will need to install projection equipment, seating, proper lighting and the sound dampening system necessary to be a responsible neighbor. Beyond this, we hope to make Suns Cinema a relaxing and comfortable venue and will need to update the facilities. We also have to navigate our way through the city’s regulations and licensing which takes time and money. This is where we need your help!

What you should expect from Suns

Although obtaining screening rights can be difficult and often expensive, we plan on programming great movies – some obscure, some familiar, all interesting. However, there are no plans to limit the screenings and events to movies only. We also plan to screen vintage television, animated shorts, and classic sportscasts while collaborating with local chefs and bartenders to bring creative food and beverage pairings to these features.

Our vision is to offer programming similar to this:
