Corstorphine Astoria Centre, 18 Kirk Loan

At the end of 2017, The Corstorphine Trust took a long term lease of the Kirk Loan Hall from The Old Parish Church.

It has been renamed The Corstorphine Astoria Centre and, in the coming months, will be the new home of the 2/4 Ingram organ that was used in the Astoria Cinema (now the site of Iceland). The Trust have undertaken to restore the Ingram to its former glory.

In the meantime, the hall has been fully refurbished, is available for hire and our shiny new website has been published (

To find out more about availability of the hall, a potted history of the cinema and the organ, take a look at our website.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Centre soon.
