Save the Astor Theatre

This petition had 7,281 supporters

On the 23rd of August 2014, the Astor Theatre, one of the last independent film houses in Victoria that has brought immense joy, wonder and a memorable cinematic experience to the Australian public since 1936, announced that it was going to be closed down because the company that serves as a landlord for the building used by the venue, Ralamar Nominees Pty Ltd, has other ideas for how the building should be used. 

If this petition gets enough signatures, we may be able to show them that there is enough public support to justify the theatre not being closed down. This is one of the venues that have managed to preserve Australian culture through film and the idea that they would want to close it down is absolutely heart-breaking.
