Astor Theatre was built in 1914 by Simon B. Alexander and designed by David McClure. On the year it was opened to public, the theatre was known as The Lyceum and the owner and builder said that it was the greatest building in the state. At that time, it was used as a multi-purpose venue for dancing and theatre events. There were renovations and repairs during 1930’s and its name was changed into State Theatre and State Summer Gardens. But in 1941, the name of the venue was again altered into what we know as Astor Theatre. The theatre was used for adult and Italian films as well as bingo halls until 1988 where it was threatened to be demolished. Due to public demand to restore the beauty of the theatre, it was reinvented in 1991 and its original elements were returned.

“Perth’s most versatile venue in terms of events. It’s my favourite for a good reason. Firstly, Beaufort St is plentiful in choices for food and drink. There is something for everyone around the Astor. Secondly, the schedule of events is unparalleled. Comedians, Drag Queens, music, poetry, dance and fringe-like events all year-round. The Astor is a treasure of Perth and should be cherished. My only criticism is about the toilets which could be improved but this will not affect my 5-star rating. Keep it up management!” – Felipe Penna

“Saw Shen Yun tonight. The accessibility for me, using a cane, and my Mum, using a walker, was easy without any stairs. The staff were brilliant. They walked down to our seats and then parked the walker. When the show ended they bought it back so I didn’t have to go find it. It may seem minor to most people but it’s very appreciated.” – Michelle Murray
Garrick Theatre is the longest running theatre located in the Guildford, Western Australia. It was dedicated to David Garrick who was an English actor and dramatist. Currently, they are celebrating their 87 years anniversary on providing theatrical entertainment to its audiences.

Book in for there talented seasonal performances throughout the year is a lovely experience in this cosy heritage theatre…Friendly people, old fashioned hospitality and proactive group… Public transportation by rail or bus….Dine at the Stirling Arms for a meal before a stage play / parking for a top evening!” – Lovely M.
