The Astor Theatre – located in Melbourne, Australia  celebrated her 75th Anniversary in 2011. 
I got the opportunity to speak over the phone to Tara Judah – the Assistant to the Proprietor of the Astor Theatre,  and ,  Treasurer of the Friends of the Astor society.

We spoke about many aspects of the Theatre:

  + How did the cinema begin ?
  + What makes the cinema different to other cinemas around Australia ?
  + Is there a fear the cinema may be no more in the future ?
  + Who has made special guest appearances to promote their film ?
  + Will it move with the times of Digital projection ?
  + The 9 lives of the Astor cat.
