Love going here. Such comfy leather look lounge chairs. Good choices for icecreams and also wine. Busy area out in the street for when folks go early. Small theatres so often booked out but even front rows are ok..

The Sun Theatre is really great. It's been restored to its old grandeur and it's been undertaken with style. This is a great theatre to see current movies and attend events. We love the Sun Theatre.
