Info Updates:

The Sunset is gone, the only remnants are the exit drive, and a portion of the drive-in field. A parking lot for Cambridge Industries, 1455 Imlay City Rd. occupies a majority of the property. According to a local resident, the Sunset started getting many complaints from a growing residential area nearby about the showing of adult films, leading its to eventual demise.
