I’ve been going to the Avon for the better part of half a century, but its latest incarnation as an arts theatre is the best! So worth becoming a member to support this type of programming in Stamford!

I recently went to see the Midwife, a French movie. It was a very good film and the theatre was excellent, clean, with very comfortable seats and an easy line of view to the screen. Even the popcorn was good! I'll be going back soon!
