Major Funding Expected For Astor Theatre

It couldn't be coming at a better time. That's how Astor Theatre manager Chris Ball sums up a planned funding announcement on Thursday in Liverpool by the member of Parliament for South Shore-St. Margarets. Gerald Keddy is expected to present a cheque to help with the theatre's fund raising campaign.

The campaign is raising money for a new digital video and audio system for the theatre and also new lighting. To date, more than half of the $100,000 goal has been reached. The Astor is the oldest operating movie theatre in Canada and still uses 35 millimetre film reels.
