Where do I start? Excellent food and drink selection. Most are local or they make in-house. BEST popcorn I've ever had with all kinds of neat shake toppings. Did I mention you can eat while you watch the movie and they bring it to you? Awesome. Usually smaller budget indie films which we love. They just added another seating area that's lovely. Great way to see a movie.

Thank WeAndy

My wife and I recently visited Sun-Ray. This is a nice older-fashioned theater. The hand painted murals are a wonderful greeting as you walk in. Several excellent menu choices including popcorn in a metal bowl. Much better than the old bags. Had the personal pizza (hand made in-house) which was excellent. Also, had the hummus and veggies. Enjoyed our movie and experience. We will be back again!

Wow, we loved it! My husband and I recently attended a screening of excellent short documentaries (ranging from about 20-29 minutes each) at the Sun-Ray Cinema while on holiday in Jacksonville, FL. The lobby of the cinema is beautifully and eclectically decorated with artwork. The cinema offers a vegetarian friendly casual array of food items, which are served to you while you enjoy your movie (I recommend the hummus.) Craft beers are also available. We loved the atmosphere so much that we came back the next day to play some pinball in the cinema's lobby. The prices are reasonable and the staff are very friendly and helpful! Don't miss out on this gem!

What a shame I've lived in Jacksonville for 5 years and have never visited this historic theater before now. This is a beautiful, old theater that is rich in character and history. You feel like you're stepping back into time when you walk in the doors. While there's only one screen here, that's part of the charm. This theater offers movies that are newly released while also offering old movies and smaller, artsy films you can't find at the larger theaters.

The concession stand is great offering food you'd actually like to eat. The popcorn is served in real bowls instead of paper tubs with a selection of delicious toppings. The pizza here is so good that some come in just to order the pizza to take with them. Inside the theater, the ceilings are soaring with comfortable chairs and a table in front of you to conveniently place your food and drink. The concession stand also offers beer and wine.

Coming here provides more than just seeing a movie; it's a whole experience. It's located in the funky and historic Five Points surrounded by unique shops, fabulous restaurants, and a variety of bars. Awesome place!
