The Sun Theatre opened in April 1938 and was the first cinema in Melbourne to be designed in the stadium seating plan, with a raised section at the rear, instead of a balcony. It had an original seating capacity for 1,041.
It was closed on 6th January 1982, after screening Greek language films for several years. The building sat derelict and empty for approximately twenty years. The Sun Theatre was restored, updated and initially re-opened as a four screen theatre. In around 2005, two additional screens were built at the rear. In 2015 another two screens were added.
