It's the first place I check when I want to see a movie. There are always quality films and events. I haven't been to any of the events yet but the films are excellent. Decent snack bar selection. They really want your business, so if anything is not to your likling, let them know and they will make sure to do better next time.

The Avon Theatre provides a walk back in time. It is an old-style movie theatre, which features critically acclaimed, less big-screen movies. I just hope the owners decide to renovate it at some point. The seats are not comfortable, and it just doesn't feel "clean."

Thanks for your review! We're glad you think we have the best movies in town! We are always discussing new renovations both large and small because we want our patrons to have the best experience possible. Just this spring we replaced the carpet, we have upgraded our seating to provide a more spacious and comfortable experience and new renovations are on the horizon. We always appreciate your feedback.

Great hard-to-find films, special lectures and events. But $11 a ticket?

You will see the best of the best at the Avon--the foreign and domestic gems that the major chain won't show you. Occasionall, stars or famous directors will come fo an evening and give a talk before the film. They also have wine and cheese events, and theirpopcorn has REAL BUTTER, not the fake junk that you get in most places. It feels like a true community theatre.
