Love going here. Such comfy leather look lounge chairs. Good choices for icecreams and also wine. Busy area out in the street for when folks go early. Small theatres so often booked out but even front rows are ok..

The Sun Theatre is really great. It's been restored to its old grandeur and it's been undertaken with style. This is a great theatre to see current movies and attend events. We love the Sun Theatre.

Everything about this cinema is amazing (except being cash only) but prices of tickets and candy bar is great and reasonable and staff friendly. The seats are comfortable and cinemas are really cosy with a great feel

Old style picture theatre, home made ice-cream and comfy seating. Great for functions/group bookings. Pop up park outside for gatherings. Yarraville at its finest!!

Great restored boutique Art Deco theatre with 8 cinemas for that 'good old going to the movies' experience. Love the lounge style chairs and enjoying the movie with a nice glass of wine too.

This is about going to the cinema with character. The facility has been transformed many years ago from being a derelict building to what is now a very comfortable cinema but at the same time preserving many of the traditional comforts such as large leather...More

Nothing beats the Sun! That's all there is to it. The only place to go to the cinema in the west. Please don't ever change.
