The Vjunior kid’s cinema experience is so popular with Melbourne families that it’s spread to Village Cinemas Sunshine in addition to existing Vjunior cinemas at Westfield Southland, Fountain Gate, Knox and Plenty Valley.
Located in the heart of Sunshine, the Vjunior at Village Cinemas Sunshine is a state-of-the-art cinema that brings you an unparalleled cinematic adventure designed specifically for families and young movie enthusiasts.
It’s a great place to introduce little kids to big-screen cinema, as well as providing older kids with a movie-going experience with a difference.
vjunior Movies for kids
Vjunior carefully curates a diverse selection of films suitable for younger kids, including animated adventures and heartwarming family dramas. Check the cinema website to see what films are playing each week (the new schedule publishes every Wednesday for a Thursday to Wednesday screenings).
Vjunior Play Areas
One of the highlights of Vjunior Village Cinemas Sunshine is its interactive play areas.
Selected screenings also include a 10-minute break which is helpful for kids that may need a toilet trip break or to quickly expend any excess energy. There are toilets inside Village Cinemas and Sunshine Marketplace.
Play time is also available after your session if there is another movie screening afterwards.
The highlight is definitely the big slide! Kids can climb up and slide down prior to the movie starting and then the supervising Village staff member will close down the slide. Note my kids at 6 and 8yo are almost too big for the slide so they prefer to play with more Mega Bloks instead.
The cinema boasts plush, spacious seats that provide ample legroom, making the entire movie session cosy and enjoyable for the whole family.
There are three different types of allocated seating inside Vjunior; standard, beanbag and recliner lounges. We are ok with the standard seating (which is still very comfortable) so I don’t think there’s any need to book beanbags or recliners.
vjunior Family-Friendly Snacks
A Vjunior menu is available with kid-friendly hot foods, milkshakes and drinks. Adults can also buy themselves a coffee.
