Eat My Shorts: Saving the Astor (2012)

Saving the Astor (2012)

Directed by: Laura Hilton
Running Time: 12 Minutes 11 Seconds
Country: Australia

The Astor Theatre is an amazing picture house in Melbourne, Australia. They show great films from cult favourites to outright classics and everything in between.  Last year they had a bit of a scare regarding their lease agreement.  During this time my friend Laura was attending film school and decided to make a short film to help with their cause.  The Astor has since been saved and thus the film serves more as a document in history than a current PSA, but it is a great watch nonetheless !
