'Marzipan' the Astor Theatre Cat dies
If you've ever been to the famous Astor Theatre on Chapel Street in St Kilda, you would've undoubtedly seen a friendly calico cat wandering around the cinema.
Sadly, the feline known as 'Marzipan' passed away last week at the age of 21.
Tom Elliott spoke to Tara Judah, assistant to the Manager of the Astor, who said Marzipan was loved by both cinema staff and theatre-goers alike.
"It's been a really difficult week for all of us at the Astor. She's was suffering illness so it wasn't unexpected but still very hard to deal with."
Marzipan was found by staff 20 years ago and when nobody claimed her, the cinema became her home.
"She was found under a truck on Chapel Street by one of our projectionists. We took her back to the Theatre, she liked it so she just stayed."
A resident cat has always been a fixture at the Astor. Before Marzipan, the Astor Cat was named 'Magenta'.
"Nobody can remember the last time there wasn't a cat here," Ms Judah said.
"At least we can say Magenta will always be here in spirit, if not physically."
PLAY: Tara Judah, assistant to the Manager of the Astor
Farewell to Marzipan
We will never forget you Marzipan. R.I.P

Farewell to Marzipan, mascot and resident of the Astor Theatre. Just as the greats of cinema from times long ago continue to live on the silver screen of the Astor , so too in spirit shall Marzipan forever be part of this most wonderful theatre.
Marzipan, we shall remember and love you always!Mark Tuesday 26 March, 2013 - 3:01 AM
