Too many technical difficulties in multiple screenings has turned me off coming here. For one thing, the audio levels are too high to the point of distortion in every screening. I've had to block my ears and have seen others do so. The frame isnt properly projected sometimes, leaving parts of the image cut off and i also watched half of Empire Strikes Back with out of sync sound and the surround sound constantly turning on and off. Find another cinema. This one is known for its nostalgia and beautiful interior, but the actual experience of the film itself is not to be desired.

This place is incredible. I was brought here a month or two ago for the first time and have been back several times since, always keen to go again.

The art deco styling of the place is awesome, it feels so grand and yet somehow still welcoming. This is probably due to the friendly and enthusiastic staff. On one occasion there was a build up of popcorn orders and the staff offered to bring the popcorn to us in the theatre (an extremely large theatre at that) instead of waiting at the counter.

I love classic movies and its clear everyone at the Astor does too, the place is filled with old posters and nods to some of the best movies of all time. They regularly play classic and cult movies but also play new releases as well, often in 70mm film.

If you want a grand cinema experience and to see a film the way it's truly intended to be seen then there's really no other place that comes close to the Astor. One of my absolute favourite places.

The Astor Theatre is one of the oldest cinemas in Melbourne. Go see an old movie re-release, sometimes in 70mm. Sit upstairs
It’s a bit musty and the seats are old and squeaky but grab a wine and see a classic movie with real movie fans. You can get there by tram or from Windsor Station and there are loads of Bars and restaurants nearby

One of the best cinemas in Melbourne as they play Classic Movies for a good price. Apparently they have had minor renovations or restorations? They still have the original seating, so don't expect fully comfy seating. Popcorn is not a favourite for mine. You can buy alcohol at the front and take it in with you - Shame they don't sell Moscato. Very close to restaurants and train station. Will be coming here again if they keep showing the classics.

I have long enjoyed this cinema building, with its wide staircases, club lounge seating in the foyer and eclectic mix of films. There used to be a cinema cat who would sit on the arms of the lounges and creep into the cinema after lights out to brush by your legs.

If you want to go to an older theatre to see how they watched movies back in the day then you should definitely go to the Astor. Lovely vintage cinema but the fact that there is only stair access to the cinema really puts a dent in the experience.

The Astor is a fantastic location to go watch some old classic movies in a genuine vintage cinema.

The seats may not be the level of luxury you might get at a more modern cinema, but the grand theatre itself is spectacular to see.

Check their website to see what’s on. They always have something different each day. I will regularly go see some of my old favourites on the big screen there.

Another nice surprise is that they will usually screen vintage trailers for upcoming movies, as well as specifically chosen old commercials related to the movie being shown.

If you have the chance to see your favourite film at the Astor, be sure to do it!

It’s a great place to see a film. Atmosphere of the theatre itself is great and they have some good films showing. Bear in mind if you do decide to visit make sure you have all your valuables before leaving. I left my wallet on the floor next to my seat, I rang that evening when I realised and was told i wouldn’t be able to find out if it had been found by the cleaner until 6:30 the following evening. Either the cleaner isn’t as thorough as the staff make out or he has light fingers. No wallet found. Because of a private function, I wasn’t even allowed to check my own seating area for peace of mind. No film was being shown at the time. as all of the guests were in the foyer mingling. No offer of phone number being taken if it does turn up. Just all in all bad customer service.

This is my first time in years that I attended a film festival opening night at the Astor - put off in the past by lack of parking options nearby. I won't go there again. Patrons were forced to wait in the windy and cold street until the 6.30 pm start, when we could have easily waited in the ground floor foyer, as drinks were only served upstairs.
The seating in the cinema is still the worn out sagging seating of yesteryear. While the place still has a certain charm, the lack of comfort destracts from it.
The food served at the afterparty was dry and cold and uninspiring.
Bring the events back to the Como!

Glorious architecture from another time, a huge 1,000 seat theatre opens up to an enormous curtained screen. The physical space lends excitement to the viewing experience.

A little bar/café and snack bar downstairs assist the cinema experience. Take a glass of whatever in with you to enjoy a film in style.

No need to change anything -
