We love going to movies here. There is a definite community feel, and they always have the movies we want to see! Support the small local businesses of Providence!! Great for a cold day or a hot night.

this is a great old theater right on Thayer street that shows mostly off the beaten path movies. It's a great place to go see the best in indie and foreign films.

The Avon is like they used to be. It is one cinema, not a box with twenty others. It has the best movies out there. It has "art" films and movies you can't see anywhere else outside of New York. The seats aren't packed in on top of each other, you can actually sit without jamming your knees into the guy in front of you. If there is a movie you want to see and it is playing at The Avon and also at The Mall or Showcase, go to The Avon. It's a better experience.

It is always a good time to walk down Thayer St. stop for appetizers and drinks on the way to this amazing Theater. Always the place to go for a great movie and popcorn. I love the old time feel, always clean and usually a great adult crowd that appreciates a good movie.
