Programs & Events
The Avalon Theatre supports its mission by exhibiting some of the most exciting year-round film programs in the Washington DC area. Our film series offer the newest in independent features, family films and world cinema, giving local filmgoers the chance to see alternative films on the big screen all year long.

Seniors: mark your calendars for the 3rd Thursday of each month, beginning July 16th, to see the Avalon’s current feature film on the big screen! Meet new friends and enjoy a morning of entertainment.
Single night premiers of some rare indie films that might not otherwise make it onto DC Area screens. Post-screening discussions and/or performances allowing the audience a chance to explore the process of filmmaking in greater depth.
The nation’s premier sneak preview film society previews and discusses the best American independent and foreign films of the season before they hit local screens.
Occasionally the Avalon will rent our space to an outside party for a film or other event we believe our audience might enjoy, this is where we get that information to you!
PLEASE NOTE! These are not Avalon Theatre Project events; they are being hosted by outside parties. Please do not contact the Avalon Theatre regarding these screenings/events. Thank you!
