Yes, the Ascot was still screening films at least until 1984. The Giorgio Moroder restoration of Metropolis played there that year. I have clippings of the original nespaper advertisements and reviews.

I could be wrong and maybe there was another single screen cinema in the Pitt St block between Park and Market Streets in the early 1980s with a similar name(and I do not mean the Lyceum Theatre). This says the Ascot was closed in 1976 but I remember seeing Superman 3(the one with Richard Pryor) there in 1983. Well when I say I saw Superman 3 I say most of it. My mother and I were late and missed the first few minutes. I also remember playing the video game Frogger there around the same time period. If I remember correctly the Ascot was run by Village where as the Pitt Centre and the Lyceum, both in the same block, were run by Greater Union.
