The Avon Theatre was opened on June 15, 1939 with a seating capacity of 780 in orchestra and balcony levels in a stadium plan. There were three large painted panels on each of the side-walls depicting pastoral scenes. The façade was in red brick with marble trimmings and white wooden columns. It was built by the Weiss Amusement Co. It was taken over by Trans-Lux who twinned it on April 2, 1980. It was later run by Crown Theatres until it closed on December 2, 1999.
In 2001, it was purchased by a private investor from Greenwich, Connecticut whose Avon Theatre, LLC restored the theatre.
The Avon Theatre Film Center re-opened on January 23, 2004 and currently shows art, foreign, and independent films. It had another reopening on February 11, 2014.
