Among the historic buildings of Washington, D.C., lies a historic theater that has survived multiple renovations and even
bankruptcy to become one of the most unique theaters in the country. With its old world feel and modern conveniences, it is
a great place for entertainment! The Avalon Theatre, once owned by the Warner Brothers, is run as a non-profit institution
that not only provides entertainment to those who come to an event at the theater, but it also provides education and financial
support to the arts. You won't want to miss seeing a first-run of a commercial movie, a showing of an independent film or
a documentary in this fascinating and beautifully preserved venue. Buy your theater

The Avalon Theatre, which seats 450 in its lower theater, has been a staple of northwest Washington, D.C. for decades.
It opened in February of 1923 and became the place for the silent films that had recently become a big thing in the country.
Later the theater was wired for sound when talking pictures became the next craze. And since that time, the theater has undergone
many changes and renovations to create the amazing venue it has become today. Air conditioning was added in 1930 and the Avalon
2 was constructed in 1970, adding an additional 200 seats to the theater. But sadly, the last commercial owners went bankrupt
and stripped the theater of its seats and projection equipment. But following the theater's closure in 2001, a group of Washington
D.C. residents decided they didn't want to see another historic D.C. landmark demolished for another retail shopping center.
So, they banded together and created The Avalon Theatre Project, which was able to reopen the building in 2003, and purchase
the theater in 2006. Now, the Avalon Theatre has become a sought-after venue for film festivals, film showings and much more!
