Astral Media's roots lie with Angreen Photo, a Canadian company founded in 1961. It was created when Montreal's Greenberg brothers founded it to operate the photography concession in Miracle Mart, a department store chain. Its acquisition in 1968 of a photographic store eventually grew into Astral Photo's 125 store-chain. The store grew quickly into motion picture processing after acquiring the Pathé-Humphries motion picture lab. The name was changed to Bellevue Pathé and later to AstralTech.
