Love the films and the place is nicely decorated. Could you get here and see an avant-guarde or off beat art film, because it's well worth it!

“Theater featuring "Art" Films.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Local cinema that features "art" films ... high quality for "selective" audience. Usually good choices offered.

“Classic Vintage Movie Theatre”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The Avon is one of Stamford's oldest theaters and it's a true gem. Located on Bedford Street among many great restaurants. This movie theatre does not play commercial blockbusters. They show primarily Independent and Foreign movies. The theatre itself is beautiful, it makes you feel like you stepped back in time!!

“Great old restored theatre!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

This will remind you of the good ol' days of big fancy movie theatres! You will enjoy the experience of being in the theatre as much as the film that you see. Good location near lots of restaurants in downtown Stamford.

“Great place for foreign and art house cinema.”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

There are two theatres. The large one has seating that makes it difficult to see, if you are short, unless you are on the side of the theatre. The second and much smaller theatre has awful seating. The large old theatre was never really divided up properly. But I am a member of this non-profit theatre and am happy that it's in my town.
