“A film lovers dream come true!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

If you enjoy the experience of quality cinema the Avon Theater is for you. No noisy kids, no sticky floors, and of course great film. The clientele is very savvy and polite. Who needs NYC when we have the Avon.

“Terrfic community "arts" theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

The renovation and transformation of this theater is a fine contribution to our city. It not only shows fine current movies, but also has prominent speakers and oldies.
