Avalon Annual Fund

We hope that you will continue to help us keep the Avalon as a cinematic gem that stands apart from the multiplexes by contributing to the Avalon Annual Fund.

2013 was an amazing year for the Avalon. We celebrated both the 90th anniversary of the completion of the building as well as the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the non-profit Avalon Theatre Project. Not only that, in 2013 the Avalon moved to digital projection equipment and installed a long- anticipated elevator to Avalon 2. None of this would have been possible without the outstanding support of our donors.

Why Give?

As a non-profit, the Avalon must raise about 10% of our annual operating expenses that ticket and concession sales do not cover. Your contribution to the Annual Fund will help maintain the Avalon Theatre as a vibrant and valued community resource.
