You can try this:
 Module[{x, y, z},
  x = r Sin[\[Theta]] Cos[\[Phi]];
  y = r Sin[\[Theta]] Sin[\[Phi]];
  z = r Cos[\[Theta]];
  Graphics3D[Cylinder[], ViewPoint -> {x, y, z}]
 {{r, 3}, 1.5, 10, Appearance -> "Labeled"},
 {{\[Theta], Pi/4}, 0, Pi, Appearance -> "Labeled"},
 {{\[Phi], Pi/6}, -Pi, Pi, Appearance -> "Labeled"}
