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

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.

I come here every trip to Melbourne, such a pretty theatre with a lovely vibe and cheaper than commercial cinemas! Love that you can have a (nice) drink while watching a movie!

The Sun is a restored Art Deco suburban theatre; now a cinema. It has three (I think) cinemas of differing sizes and each are rather beautiful. The seats are new and are deep and comfortable with big wide arms to rest your drinks on. It...More

We often come to the Sun - comfy seats, delicious treats and a super cool atmosphere. Be sure to book online prior to your trip to ensure you don’t miss out.

Totally love the sun theatre, but on a 41 degree day thought it would be nice and cool and comfortable in the theatre. Unfortunately it wasn’t. It was very hot and uncomfortable. Disappointing
