In the last fifty years, many movie theatres,

including our local cinema,

have had some sort of retrofit.

Whether it was seating, lights, screen or projector,

all retrofits have had a beneficial effect

on patrons, movie-going experience.

In 2019 we heard of the Sun Theatre

in Yarraville (Melbourne), and paid a visit.

Opened in 1938  the original 1050 seat auditorium

was retrofitted nearly 30 years ago

into 4 smaller theatres

with another 4 being added at later dates.

If you are ever visiting Melbourne

why not take a 15-minute train ride to

Yarraville from Southern Cross Station.

The Sun Theatre is about a two-minute walk

from Yarraville Station and will be the first thing

you see as you step off the train.

  1. Good article. In Canada that type of theater retro fitting usually means dividing the original space into smaller portions, reducing the seating capacity and changing the name to ‘multiplex”.

  2. I love your response to this and I know exactly what you mean the cinemas/ theatres turning back time. But you visited in 1919? You’re doing very well for an old guy, Woolly!😂
