Located in the Oak Cliff section of the city, it opened as part of the Ed Foy Neighborhood Theatres circuit in 1919 as the Rialto Theatre. The owner died in 1924 and other independent operators then ran the theatre. In 1933 it was renamed Bishop Avenue Theatre, then in 1934 was rechristened Astor Theatre and was remodeled.
Sometime thereafter the Interstate Theatres Inc. took control of the Astor Theatre. Following their operation, the Robb-Rowley organization acquired the theatre and operated it until it closed in 1950.
The theatre has been used on and off as a nightclub since its closure. It was last used as an antique store, but currently in 2010 remains unused.
