This pint-sized cinema has been independently run since it opened in 1938. Not only will you find a welcome breadth of arthouse and foreign films on the program; you'll also admire its well-preserved Art Deco facade on the way in. 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.

- Set in a neon-bathed Lake Tahoe hotel in 1969, this boldly original but frustrating noir is frontloaded with mysteries. What’s brought its four edgy guests to its doors? What’s the significance of the Nevada-California state line running smack d...Read more
