“Best Cinema in Melbourne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

One of the last cinemas to have couple seating. Harks back to a better time. Best value in Melbourne. Gold Class at standard pricing.

“The best cinema in Melbourne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Whether you are local or coming from afar, the Sun Theatre just completes the Yarraville Village experience.

Tastfully restored and renovated, the cinemas within range from small and loungey, to grand and opulent.

Grab a home-made choc-top and a glass of champagne on your way in, and note the ramps and stairwell-lift for patrons with disabilities.

If your sick of the mega-mall cinemas with their tired decor, sticky carpet and unsupervised kids running riot, the Sun Theatre could well become your new cinematic home away frm home.

“fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Great Cinema has a nice old fashioned feel about it.
your able to buy grog to enjoy while you watch your movie.
nice and comfy chairs also lounges.

During peak hours its very hard to find a car park near the place.
but well worth a bit of a walk to enjoy this place.

“Step back in time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Love this cinema. Large seats and comfy lounge chairs. Has a very old feel to it. Plenty of parking around this area and it has a great book store next door with a really large variety of titles.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I've seen Gold Class and the Directors Suite, but Sun Theatre trumps them all. Beautiful intimate theatres with extremely comfortable seating. Parking can be an issue though...
