The Avon is a non-profit, member-supported organization that has been described as an eclectic and whimsical picture house. The theatre is highlighted by an original exterior facade, framed by a restored vertical "AVON" marquee that lights up the Connecticut sky at night.

Attending a screening of a new film at the Avon was nostalgic experience reminding me of my moviegoing as a child. It was a very pleasant visit.

Cozy circa 1939 theatre, The Avon often gets films not in other theaters; join as a member and you get access to preview films, a free pass on your birthday. Worth preserving

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!
