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...

We love sipping a wine whilst lounging in the large leather chairs. This place is full of character which adds to the experience. The candy bar serves freshly popped popcorn and hand dipped choc tops - doesn't get much better!

This Sun Theatre, located in the heart of Yarraville village is my local cinema. Beautifully restored art-deco buildin close to Yarraville station and plenty of dining options near by. I love it because it has so much more ambience than the large commercial cinemas. They offer a wide range of movies, bar service and the usual snacks. Remember to take... More
