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!

We are so glad that the Avon theater was renovated and reopened! It has charm, class, and romantic artsy vibe. Great popcorn too.

I love being a member and supporting the Avon! From walking in the door with the woman who sells the tickets with a smile who has been there forever, to the staff at the snack bar, I feel like I am in a small town...More

A wonderful film theatre. Very much a mission of love for the community of enthusiastic patrons. If only all picture houses were like this. An eclectic mix of films rostas, respectful audiences and willing staff. Plus nearby bars and diners to visit before and after....More

I recently went to see the Midwife, a French movie. It was a very good film and the theatre was excellent, clean, with very comfortable seats and an easy line of view to the screen. Even the popcorn was good! I'll be going back soon!
