“Sun Theater For Sundays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We are members of the Sun Theatre and visit 6-8 times per year. The OLDE WORLD cinema experience is what it's all about and the mix of patrons is eclectic. The cinema goes actually stop to watch a picture. No mobile phones, no phone texting, noisy kids....just good old fashioned fun at the movies. Add some food and a bottle of wine or a beer to the mix. You can sit in a plush chair, have a drink and relax in great surrounds and after take your pick from the many eateries that surround the Sun. Yarraville has it all.... the Sun, the fun and the food.

“Much better than any large complex”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

This is a lovely cinema. I love that they have restored the old building and you have a choice of movies as there are several cinemas within. Staff are great and I love the atmosphere. I just wish they would turn the volume down in the cinemas as it is often so loud that the dialogue is distorted and hard to hear what is actually being said but this is not unique to the Sun Theatre; it's the same everywhere. Regardless of this, you will enjoy the Sun Theatre experience as it is much nicer than any large complex. Try the amazing choc tops - nothing like them anywhere else. They are superb!
Note: they don't take credit cards or eftpos at the venue but there is an ATM in the foyer.

“Gold Class Atmosphere without the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Love going to the Sun Theatre in Yarraville. Multiple theatres within ranging from the normal capacity to small boutique lounge atmosphere. The staff are always friendly and it is easy to make a booking in person or online. They have all the current movies and show a few oldies as well as smaller released movies as well. Parking can be a little tricky for some sessions. Quite near restaurants and a few wine bars as well. Go and have a great time.

“We love our local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Well, it isn't really our local as we don't live in Yarraville. But we still go, because we love the Sun. We particulary love the prices on Mondays and Tuesdays and the fact that all the cinemas now have digital screening and sound. It makes all the difference. Even if you end up in a small theatre, it is still excellent.

“Quiet and peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

A lovely cinema for a quiet night out. Much better than the bigger cinemas. Great for couples particularly on weeknights.
