Rex – only church in vicinity is now Columbus Cafe corner Burnley Tce and Dominion Road. I think the Astor was further in towards town where the car rentals are(opposite Ballyntine reserve) or even closer next to the BNZ corner of Bellwood Ave and D'Rd.

I think this theatre was demolished and a church was built on it’s site
