When the movies came to Vicksburg: In the 1920s, residents could take in the latest movie at the Sun Theatre on North Main Street, where the old PNC Bank parking lot is now. At the beginning of the decade, patrons watched the silent movies of Charlie Chaplin, but by the end of the decade, the “talkies” were introduced. Thanks to Vicksburg Historical Society.
