What you can expect

Australia’s oldest outdoor picture theatre, Sun Pictures has been entertaining audiences since it opened in 1916. Showing all of the latest blockbuster hits, Sun Pictures Cinemas has come a long way since its original screenings of silent movies. A visit to the cinema is both historic and entertaining as the entrance to the cinema is a small museum, showcasing a range of film-orientated memorabilia such as old projectors. The cinema is constantly being updated with current cinema technology to make your movie experience one to enjoy. The main outdoor section features old fashioned canvas-style sling deck chairs that are fairly comfortable, although many choose to bring along their own pillow or cushion for added support that can help during lengthy viewings. There is also an alternative undercover area with park bench style seating at the back, perfect for those rainy days. If you're planning to settle in for an evening at the Sun Pictures Cinema, it's a good idea to bring along some insect repellent to keep the mosquitoes away, which can be the only real factor that can otherwise dampen the experience. With multiple screenings per night (unlike most other outdoor cinemas in Australia which feature only one or two per week), there's always a good time to grab yourself some popcorn or a choc-top ice cream, settle in and enjoy an evening of entertainment under the open skies.
