The Sun Theatre

Home > Melbourne > Cinema
Published February 7th 2012
Want to watch a movie along with a nice bottle of wine and without bothering about elbow space? Then give the Sun Theatre in Yarraville a try.

A gem amongst Melbourne's movie theaters, the Sun was opened in 1938. Back then it belonged to the most luxurious cinemas in the area and regularly filled up its 1050 seats on a Saturday night.

Today the Sun comprises 660 seats over six boutique cinemas, but it still stands out with its nostalgic charm and its comfy reupholstered seatings.

The ultimate treat is the La Scala auditorium. Sink deep into your leather coach while enjoying the latest cinema classic with superb sound and screen quality.

The cinema is licensed, so you might as well treat yourself to a nice bottle of wine. Most seats have an attached table, so you don't have to worry about holding on to your glass.

Tickets for adults are 15 dollars. Concession card holders pay 11 dollars. If you become a regular at the Sun, get a membership card for 11 dollars per year and you will get your movie ticket for 10.50 dollars.

A good way to spend the time while waiting for your movie to start is a visit to the adjoining Sun Bookshop with its well-selected collection.

Young mothers might think it's just too bad the cinema abandoned its old pram room: Back in the old days, mothers could leave their babies here while enjoying their movie. Each baby was given a number and if it started crying, this number was flashed on the screen. Pretty handy, isn't it?!
