“Depends on where you sit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Don't go here to see blockbusters, go here to see the less frequented but often superior films. The smaller cinemas at the Sun have sofas and loads of legroom so you have a special experience. If you're after a big mainstream flick go to Hoyts or Village.

“Great independent movie theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Brilliant location, brilliant cinema, dont go for the sound or the scren or the luxury seating. Go to enjoy the movies in a great place, so nice not feel corporatised or too "boutiquey" . Loads of places to park, train station, surrounded by great bars, cafes and a book shop or tow.

“Great old school Art Deco cinema”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

This place is great - lots of character and good value. Some cinemas have great couple couches. A good selection of wine and beer at the candy bar. Combine a movie with a meal at one of the great local restaurants.
