“stamford is so fortunate to have the avon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

first, i confess i am a happy member of the avon viewer/membership.
i love film and the avon over-delivers: small indies/first-class-first releases/guest speakers/films not seen in years/ films not seen elsewhere.
the avon was brought back with love and is lovingly maintained. if you are not a popcorn makes a great meal, great food options surround the avon.
this is a destination.

“One of my favorite places...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2012

This is a great little theater that is always playing interesting movies. I'm there whenever a new movie comes out which is quite often. They make the best popcorn - they use real butter and layer it in the bag. Sinfully delicious!

“A Wonderful Magical Historic Theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2012

We love this place as it is historic and lovely. The movies are always worthwhile and overall experience enjoyable. Additionally, just outside of the entrance is downtown Stamford which has excellent food and shopping choices
