The Astor opened in October 1939 and according to newspaper reports was very palatial although it did not appear to be a purpose-built cinema. It was later run in tandem with the Castle by Supreme Cinemas and although damaged by a bomb in the 1970s was reopened by someone called Hopkins. I am still trying to ascertain the date of closure but it was later opened as a children’s play centre, by a former social worker, with what appears to be a modified frontage.
