    The Avon's charming size and feel complements the films they show. Seats are narrow compared to newer theaters and there are no cup holders to hold beverages. Watch your step entering the rows!

    This is a cute one-screen cinema which has a really retro feel (down to the pre-movie reminders!) makes you feel like you should go to a diner and order a milkshake +fries afterwards

    Cute little theatre. Nice sound, small screen but just fine for the kind of movies they play. I loved it!

    Absolute vintage perfection- only $8 for a ticket and not a bad seat in the house.

    No fountain soda and only small bottles of soda. Smuggle in bigger and better, if necessary.
