The Sun Theatre in Yarraville was opened in 1938 as a single-screen cinema. It has since expanded to hold eight screens but maintains its historic luxury.
The inside is all done in an Art Deco style and each of the eight theaters has it’s own personal style.
We saw La La Land, which is still in cinemas here. Our theatre was the St. George’s, one of the smallest with only about 40 seats. This theatre is taller than it is wide, so the architects decided to put in a spiral staircase up to a balcony where there are only 10 seats. It was fun to sit up there, where the viewing of the screen was great. Every seat in the St. George is more like an armchair and has a small side table next to it.
