Decided to drive to the Sun Theatre for something different to do today, never been there as I live the other side of town. But one thing is for sure, we will definitely be back! This theatre is just fantastic! There are a variety of cinemas that are all different sizes. We were in the St Georges cinema which seemed... More

Small quirky local theatre. Seating is spacious and easily rivals the "gold class" of the larger movie houses. Relaxing to the movies with my glass of Shiraz, made the show quite mellow. Fantastic Beasts in a great local theatre. Easily the best in Victoria. If you happen there during the day, the street scene outside is also enjoyable. Relax with... More

purchased 2 gift vouchers and was advised that they don't expire ! Was also told that if the recipients have a concession card, that will be deducted from the voucher and carried over. I am amazed and thrilled by this sort of service, and why wouldn't you go there (voucher or not), as it is truly a lovely experience. Gorgeous... More

One of the best and most comfortable movie theatres I have ever had the pleasure of going to. Art Deco luxury at its best.

Sun theatre is a cinema experience like it used to be before the major franchises became formulaic and identical. A unique movie experience in smaller, more intimate screening room in a lovely part of town. I took a friend who uses a wheelchair along and the staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating to our needs.

What a quaint, busy, fun and interesting Theatre to visit! Buy a bottle of wine at the theatre counter and just take it in with you to sip while you enjoy your movie! This theatre is very popular and i can see why. Bookings can be done on line otherwise you might be disappointed and not get a seat in... More

Attended a movie at the Sun Theatre last night, thoroughly enjoyed it as always! I find Yarraville an absolute gem, so many quality eateries and bars, topping the night off at 'The Sun' is always a treasure. Easy to catch the train and cheap nights are Monday and Tuesday ($11 tix!)

Got kids? School holidays? Want a great place to take your date? Need to treat yourself? I mean I can't think of reasons or situations on why you shouldn't come here. Buy your ticket, sit outside in one of the many cafes outside, and then go see your movie in a smaller cinema with less people then the big chains.... More
