I loved the old school experience of the Sun Theatre. It was like being taken back in time to a place of glamour and luxury. A truely remarkable viewing experience, which I would recommend to anyone.

The best choice of films in its art deco decor with huge squishy sofas to sink into in most of the cinema studios. Arty bookshops and restaurants everywhere and interesting people. Always a good night out.

The Sun is a Melbourne institution in a charming village surrounded by bars and eateries. The cinema always has a good range of films from arthouse to blockbuster. It’s beautifully maintained, some of the cinemas new extensions. Always a lovely afternoon or evening out.
