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

The sun theatre has helped rejuvenate yarraville. I wouldn't go anywhere else to watch movies. Great comfy seats a variety of Art Deco cinemas, you can take in a glass of wine what more do you need. This business is community conscious as well and always trying new things like bring your dog day or setting up a big screen... More

Went to see Nerve (2016). The film wasn't great but the screen we was in was really cosy. The screen hosted around 20 seats but the chairs were really comfy, almost a sofa chair. Would recommend if you're in the area, the price is cheaper than the cinemas closer to the city centre too.

The Sun Movie Theatre in Yarraville has been like a part of our family since day one. Starting back in the 1930's when it was to be built, a call went out for local residents to take part in the construction & my Grandfather was employed as one of the workers. Upon its completion the cinema quickly became a focal... More

It is reasonably small in comparison to a modern cinema (Hoyts/Village). If you come here on a Saturday be prepared to queue, especially in summer. In summer queues often go for a few meters. The seats here are firm so not ideal for lounging around. This place is ideal if you are eating in one of areas many restaurants. If... More

I grew up in the area and on a given Saturday night the whole family in fact all the Greeks, which was nearly all of Yarraville (it was known as little Greece in the 60's) would dress up and head on down to the Sun Theatre to watch Greek dramas, comedies, early Bollywood movies, and of course the three Stooges...
