The Avalon Theatre was opened May 28, 1938 with Clark Gable in “Call of the Wild” & Phil Regan in “Outside of Paradise”. It cost $27,000 to build. I saw my first movie in this theatre. I was 9 years old at the time and my dad took my older brother and me to to see Charlton Heston in “The Ten Commandments”. The Avalon Theatre was closed in 1970 and like many other neighborhood theatres in the inner city, it was turned into a church. The building is still standing. The Avalon Theatre was located about two blocks north of Miles Avenue on E. 131st Street.
