Atmosphere, comfort, smart thinking films. Simply put, this is the only place you will ever need to attend a great independent movie. Period.

Avon is a local treasure showing high quality mostly independent motion pictures. Sometimes you get to see movies before word of mouth takes them to wide release. They usually show films you can't see anywhere else.

The Avon is great. Shows offbeat and indie films you can't see anywhere else. Especially good if you join as member. Skip the popcorn though...
