Stamford's best movie theatre for thought provoking high quality films. Great music related films too.

The Avon brings us the best of independent films in a convenient location. They really know the community and the audience. Great foreign films, and guest speakers too.

They will never again build old time movie theaters like the Avon Theater. This is the place to go for all new alternative movies. This is my favorite movie theatre.

With so many lousy movies coming from Hollywood - prequels, sequels, mail-it-in scripts, no plot/character development/flat characters and spoiled stars/directors/producers, it is so great to be able to enjoy daring indie films in this lovely setting with other community supporters!

The Avon is a great place to enjoy indie films that you won't find in most mainstream theaters. It's an old theater that has been cut up into small auditoriums, and some of the seating is strange. But other than that, it's a unique moviehouse. I go there at least once a month.
