Sun Theatre

The Sun Theatre in Yarraville features a large auditorium that has been divided into 4 cinemas and another 2 cinemas have recently been added to some land at the rear.

The Sun Theatre features six stunning cinemas, all detailed in the art deco style - many with original details, and all are now open to the public and screening the latest new release films.

History of Sun Theatre


The Sun originally opened in 1938 and was a single screen 1050 seat cinema - the most luxurious in the area. Most Saturday's were fully booked at the Sun; both a booking office and ticket counter were used to handle the large crowds. The SUN BOOKSHOP was the original candy bar.

Imagine the buzz on a Saturday night which regularly sold out and 1050 patrons were in the foyer. Today we seat only 660 over 6 boutique cinemas, but, we still think our foyer gets mighty busy.

Unique to the cinema was the pram room where babies in their prams were placed and given a number, if your baby started crying, your number was flashed on the screen.

During the 50's and 60's TV was the new novelty and the crowds dwindled. To satisfy the new population in Yarraville the SUN became a Greek cinema in the 60's. The SUN became derelict over the next twenty years until the current owners purchased it in 1995, restoring it to the beautiful cinema it is today.
