Support the Avalon Annual Fund

For over 90 years, the historic Avalon Theatre has inspired generations of filmgoers by bringing dreams to life through the wonder of motion pictures. Help us continue putting dreams onscreen by making a tax-deductible contribution to the 2017-18 Avalon Annual Fund today.

Donate Online Now   Or, download a printable donation form.

Your support of DC’s oldest operating movie theater – and its only nonprofit film center – funds programs for the entire community, from students to seniors. In the past year, Annual Fund donations have supported programs like our Wednesday Signature Series, which brings unique films from around the world to the Avalon for single night screenings, and Cinema Classroom at the Avalon, a free program for middle and high school students that has drawn over 4000 students from all eight DC wards.

Your contributions also help maintain our beautifully restored theater building, the oldest continually operating theater in Washington, DC.

Please help ensure that the Avalon continues to thrive as DC’s only nonprofit, community-focused film center.
