As part of the Raleigh filmmaking (and filmgoing) community, we’re saddened to hear that Mission Valley Cinema has closed after almost half a century.
We have a special connection with Mission Valley, which opened in March 1973. Earlier this year, we had the honor of filming a scene in the lobby for our upcoming Oh Crappy Day feature. It was the perfect location, filled with cinematic history, including film reels and a vintage 35mm projector.
We’re proud we could preserve a bit of that history, in a scene depicting the colorful decor of the lobby. We’ll always be grateful to the manager and employees of Mission Valley for helping us with our filmshoot.
