“Great Nostalgic venue.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

I spent many times visiting this venue as a teenager (40 years ago) to see shows I still recall and the venue is now better then it was as a teenager.

“Old Style Picture Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Situated in the gorgeous suburb of Yarraville, this lovely old theatre allows guests to purchase alcohol and to take their drinks into the theatre. There are also cushions and blankets for your use. Just a fantastic experience from yesteryear.....

“Yes I love this place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

My favourite place to watch a movie apart from the comfort of my lounge room.
I think it was the first time I stepped into the Sun Theatre that I started avoiding Village and Hoyts cinemas. Hey, there's nothing wrong with them, but this place is much more my style, it's gorgeous and a world away from your lack luster carbon copy regular cinemas.

“best little theatre in the west”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

this is an old fashioned art deco theatre, that has been revived to best standards whilst keeping its original decor and design. For that alone, it's worth a visit. It plays current and arthouse movies. It has FABULOUS choc-tops, very comfy seating and you can take your wine into the movie with you. A very decent bookshop is attached. In the middle of Yarraville Village you will have no trouble finding food and drink before or after your visit. Be aware that at this stage they accept cash only, or you can book online.

“Jewel in the crown of Yarraville day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Yarraville is interesting at anytime. We had lunch at the Burger Restaurant 'Grilled' and a lovely walk around in the gorgeous shops. School holidays so the atmosphere was lots of fun. Saw Noah at the Sun Theatre. Just the most wonderful cinema, busy but the staff were terrific and added to the fun atmosphere. I recommend this cinema.
