Opened in 1921, this was one of Den Haag’s major cinemas for many years and was operated by Germany’s Ufa chain before the advent of World War II. Designed by architect J.W. van der Weele, it had decorations by Chris Lebeau. It was named after the famous Danish-German actress Asta Nielsen. In 1938, it was given a new facade.
Its 4Manual/29Ranks Blaisse-Strunk organ was played by organists Piet Leechburgh, Jos Carpay and Louis Zaewyn. It was the largest theatre organ to be installed in Holland, and has now been reinstalled in a dinner-theater in the town of Steenwijk.
The Aster Theatre was a 70mm roadshow house in the 1960’s and 1970’s. and its days as a cinema ended in 1994. Since 23rd May 2003, the former Asta Theatre has served as a disco and nightclub, but is reportedly being considered as the site for a casino along with the former Marks & Spencer store next door.
