The Astor is hosting a Bill Paxton tribute

Following news of Bill Paxton's death, the Astor will be hosting a special tribute screening. 

The iconic Melbourne cinema will be screening Near Dark in 35mm film. 


Released in 1987, Near Dark has grown to enjoy a cult following. An American western horror film, it features Paxton as Severen - a psychotic vampire out with intentions to kill. 


With an illustrious career including roles in Twister, Aliens, Titanic and over 90 other films, Paxton passed away aged 61 this week suffering complications from surgery. 


It's going down Saturday April 1 at The Astor Theatre
