Old-school theater, featuring independent cinema. Could be a tiny bit more adventurous in programming, but then I'm very grateful for what it is.

So many things to love about the Avon. They play a great selection of films, not the cheesy stuff you find at the multiplex. The lobby is old-school and reminds me of the theatre I used to go to as a kid. Very nostalgic type of place, in a good way!

The only complaint I have, really, is that the seats need more cushioning. They're just worn and old. Not very comfortable. Luckily, the excellent films are mesmerizing, so I don't notice the seats for long.

You can rely on the Avon to have interesting and provocative films. Located in the heart of collegiate Thayer St, it's a great destination for a movie and meal.

Old time movie theater that features indie and other non-blockbuster releases............but they still get top productions. (Kings Speech, Tree of Life, etc)
