Thanks to our many generous supporters, the historic Avalon Theatre was rescued from closing in 2003 and continues to be a vibrant, community-focused cinematic landmark in DC’s Chevy Chase neighborhood. As a non-profit theater, the Avalon relies on the support of our friends and patrons to maintain the theater as a venue for outstanding films and programs.
Contributions to the Avalon support:
DC’s only independent, non-profit movie theater
A dynamic mix of excellent studio, independent, and foreign films
Programs for all members of the community, including seniors, students and families
First-class digital projection and sound
Our beautifully restored historic theater building
Estate Planning is an opportunity for you to consider how a life income gift or naming the Avalon as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy can significantly benefit the theater.
