My Melbourne: the Sun in the West

The Sun Theatre is a Yarraville landmark. Built in 1938, it is one of the few remaining Art Deco cinemas in Melbourne. It has been restored and updated and now houses four screens, which show a range of titles from the latest releases to the classics.

Right next door to the movie theatre is the Sun Bookshop. Although small, it has a great selection of titles. The bookshop is big on supporting local authors and runs a range of events from launches and readings to book festivals.

And all within cooee of excellent cafes and restaurants. I'm sure you can see why I like Yarraville.
