On Thursday the 7th of July 2011, the preservation of Astron cinema was discussed by the Central Council of Newer Monuments at the Ministry of Culture. Although four members of the Council voted for and four members against the preservation of the cinema, the final negative decision with marginal majority relied on the double vote of the chairman of the Council, an old practice which has been abandoned since 2008! Considering Aston’s architectural and cultural merits, the fact that it is one of the last six purpose-built cinemas of Athens, the Ministry of Culture should re-examine its final decision.
