The Astor was one of Auckland’s biggest and busiest second run “action” houses. The building was made of corrigated iron, with a brick foyer and frontage and large neon.
It opened in 1911 as the Empire Theatre, later becoming the New Empire Theatre. In the early 1940’s it was re-named Astor Theatre and underwent some re-fitting in around 1950. It closed in 1985, being demolished later that year.
