The venue was converted for use as a theatre in 1976, running shows up to 1985 before being exclusively used as a music venue and night club, with a capacity of 2,000. Opening as a cinema in 1927, the Astoria was built on the site of a former pickle factory near St Giles' Circus, in Charing Cross Road, central London (opposite Centre Point).
