Asheboro, NC - The Sunset Theatre in downtown Asheboro will host a special movie presentation to mark the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. On September 9, 10 and 11 the theatre will have free showings of the feature-length documentary "Project Rebirth." Through time-lapse photography and the stories of individuals shaped by September 11, 2001 the movie shows a living history of the human spirit coping with disaster.

From early 2002 through 2009, the REBIRTH film crew chronicled the lives of five people directly affected by 9/11. The participants include a survivor from an impact floor of the South Tower of the World Trade Center (WTC); a firefighter who survived the collapse of the WTC but lost his best friend; a high school student who lost his mother; a young woman who lost her fiancé; and a construction worker who lost his brother, assisted with recovery efforts, and is presently helping to build the Freedom Tower. Their narratives are the thread of recovery and resiliency from grief, loss and trauma that comprise the unique message of the film. (From the "Project Rebirth" web site)

The special movie presentation has been made possible by the Randolph Rotary, Asheboro Rotary, Midstate Rotary, the Sunset Theatre Capital Campaign Committee and the City of Asheboro. The Courier-Tribune is a media sponsor of the event.

The movie will show on Friday, September 9 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, September 10 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, September 11 at 3 and 7 p.m. The theatre is located at 234 Sunset Avenue in downtown Asheboro. For more information, call 626-1240.
