ASTOR THEATRE
100 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW
1915 – 2015
FRIDAY 18 DECEMBER, 2015 – ASTOR THEATRE
Tickets On Sale 9am Friday October 23 from www.astortheatreperth.com
Originally constructed in 1914/1915 in a Federation Free Classic style, the present day owners of the building currently known as the Astor Theatre are proud to celebrate 100 years in 2015 of Mount Lawley’s architectural history. Not only are the Zimmermann’s proud, but they’re putting on a show reflective of the buildings current use as one of Perth’s best live entertainment venues – the Astor Theatre.
From its beginnings as Lots 427 and 428, on the corner of Beaufort and Walcott Streets, the building was originally designed for a mixture of vaudeville and lantern slide shows and retail stores and with the popularity of film, would be advertising motion pictures and orchestra under the name the Lyceum Theatre by 1922.
In 1938 the Astor Theatre underwent extensive Inter-War Art Deco style renovations, transforming the appearance and design of the building to one which we still know it by today, reopening under the new name of State Theatre in 1939, before being renamed as the Astor Theatre in 1941.
Now, 100 years on from its beginnings on the corner of Beaufort and Walcott streets, a stellar line-up of Australian live acts is coming together to celebrate the history of this landmark building and live entertainment hub of Mount Lawley.
Heading the line-up is REGURGITATOR, who verging on 22 years since forming late 1993 and playing 800 plus live forays from their first public performance early 1994, remain one of Australia’s premiere live acts. “The Gurge” head back to Perth in a mood for celebration with the recent release of their debut live album “Nothing Less than Cheap Imitations”.
Joining Regurgitator for the occasion will be local favourites SUGAR ARMY, BOYS BOYS BOYS and DAY OF THE DEAD with the infamous DJ BRETT ROWE firing out all the 90’s classics to keep the party vibes flowing.
