The new Avon Theatre was mentioned in the March 31, 1934 issue of Motion Picture Herald, which said that Gordon Ballew had been named manager, and added that “[t]he house is owned by local business men and constructed at a cost of $65,000.” The Avon had opened in February.

Never heard of that movie in 1984 photo,noticed a “MAN THAT LOVED WOMEN” in the one sheet frame,wonder if they could be talking about the Burt Reynolds comedy? It was owned in the 50’s by Statesville Theatre Corp.
