This pint-sized cinema has been independently run since it opened in 1938.

Even Quentin Tarantino visited the Sun Theatre on his Hateful Eight publicity tour.
Reasonably priced tickets encourage frequent viewing, and the choc tops are second to one. It also abuts the now-permanent Yarraville plaza – an AstroTurfed heaven perfect for a quick pre-movie beverage.

- Never take pity on a film critic. Instead, let it suffice to say that I look forward to you seeing Hereditary and then joining me in having several sleepless nights peering into dark corners and gnawing your fingernails off. A harrowing story of u...Read more
- This fun, pacy addition to the dino disaster franchise doesn’t do much that’s particularly new – though what it does, it does with panache. That’s largely thanks to gifted Spanish director JA Bayona, who brings to bear the macabre touches that m...Read more
