Thanks to the beautiful folks at the Astor Theatre, to celebrate the upcoming release of the most recent Astor Movie Calendar we have 10 Astor Double Passes to give away!

And winning couldn't be easier. To go into the draw all you need to do is tell us the one thing you love most about the Astor and you could win a double pass for a fine night of classic cinema viewing.

All entries will go into the All Star Barrel and winners will be drawn at random.
Entries close 7pm Thursday the 2nd of August and winners will be announced Friday the 3rd of August.
Prizes will only be available to pick up from the store and winner must produce photo ID upon pick up.

Again a huge thanks to the wonderful Astor folk for involving us in this promotion. And in case you aren't already aware the Astor is facing a somewhat uncertain future. To read up more about this please head here, then here. Here's too ensuring we can continue to enjoy amazing films in the Astor's stunning surroundings for generations to come.

For more Astor action check out:


  1. The posters of their upcoming session times. They're as iconic as the theatre itself

  2. The nostalgic feeling when you walk into the cinema. Better than your local over-done multiplex.

  3. The opportunity to watch on the big screen those classic 1980s movies that I foolishly never saw when they were released! :)

  4. They have a cat! You can pat it while you eat icecream. Also, they have matinees, and I often misread it for manatees

  5. Seeing classic films that same out before I was born in the theater, the way they are supposed to be experienced

  6. The resident cats, the out-of-date "coming soon" trailers, the atmosphere, the size (1100 seat cinema!), the architecture, the suspicious looking sculptures on either side of the screen (you know the ones I mean...). In short, everything!

  7. Watching a film from the very front row of the balcony at the Astor is perfection for film-goers. It might be the best spot to watch a film anywhere in the world...

  8. The art deco fire exits on the balcony (complete with palm trees!)

  9. The spontaneous round of applause that runs through the crowd while the credits roll on a classic - it really adds to the sense of community.

  10. With a huge thanks to Astor Theatre and all that entered, here are winners to our Astor New Calendar Double Pass Giveaway!
