Loved the decor and the couples couches...where can you go to the movies for $20 and have a great seat like that? Watching the shorts for the upcoming movies made me want to come back to experience the movie again and again...

How a cinema should be - an experience. Right in the centre of Yarraville, it is next to a pedestrianised area, awash with cafes, and a nice place to hang out on an evening. A short walk from the train station, the Sun Theatre is...More

What an amazing experience visiting here. We loved the old style but classy feel of it. Chairs were super comfy (no sore backside after a 2hr movie lol). Definitely recommend the choc tops. They were absolutely amazing and sooo much better than what any other...More

So nice to have such a retro movie cinema without the commercialism. So many food options around the corner. A cinema for every movie, occasion. Best home made choc tops ever 👍

I love this place. It's the best cinema experience at normal cinema prices. Art deco designs in each theatre and embodies the spirit of community. It's luxurious and you can take in some great local wines from the lobby. Just wish they would make their...More

Whilst visiting my daughter, we decided to take in a film at this delightful venue. The seats are so roomy, the decor's great and the choc top ice creams are a must not miss. It is such a change from the multiplex type of cinema...More

First time visiting the Sun, seems to be a well kept secret. Nicely restored 1920/30s interior and exterior, actually quite a tardis - bigger on the inside. Getting in was a bit of scramble, really small foyer with a lady shouting the next film over...More

A comfortable theatre in the heart of Yarraville. Very Art Deco which adds to the experience and I especially loved that I could take a glass a wine to enjoy with my popcorn !

These cinemas are worth crossing the bridge for! Not only are the movies cheaper here, they have comfortable seats and a good offering at the candy bar. Book and pay online to beat the lines in the foyer.
