THE AS­TOR, MEL­BOURNE

Australian Traveller - - Shortcuts -

While other clas­sic pic­ture houses have un­der­gone up­grades to add screens and max­imise space, the sheer size and op­u­lence of Mel­bourne’s As­tor means it’s been able to rest on its lau­rels and sim­ply keep its sin­gle, lux­u­ri­ous, 1150-seat au­di­to­rium, that has been in oper­a­tion since 1936 (al­beit now with a state of the art 4K pro­jec­tor and air-con). Come for the screen­ings of cult clas­sics or sim­ply to see those big gold cur­tains part. as­torthe­atre.net.au
