Seize the opportunity to own a piece of Morpeth’s history. The Astor Theatre awaits its next chapter. Whether you’re an astute investor, a cultural enthusiast, or a visionary looking for a distinctive space, Astor Theatre is ready for its curtain call (STCA).


The Astor Theatre was first open in 1921, the theatre was originally erected as the Primitive Methodist Church in late 1800’s, then converted to an indoor theatre, the first of its kind outside of Sydney. The Astor held many community events from 1929 including dances, balls, flower shows and exhibitions.

In 1954 the next significant development was the advent of CinemaScope. Equipped with state-of-the-art projection equipment and sound system, the Astor began advertising weekly films. Exclusive screenings of Walt Disney’s Peter Pan were held at in 1954. Not long after the theatres 150th birthday in 1971, the theatre fell into a slumber and was used as a storage facility.
