I was born in savannah,ga. I would go to the movies as a child. I was fascinated with the downtown theatres. I remember the Avon featuring double features. I saw lassie there as well as Hercules point blank road to Nashville and night of the living dead. I would walk through the concession area out to the alley and to the main theatre. the auditorium was beautiful. I also remember the posters three to a side. as well as the lobby cards at top and at the front. coming attractions were advertised on mini billboards. you would hear music like if you knew Susie. then the screen would light up the curtains would open and you saw a cartoon coming attractions and the movies. I saw a lady out front selling peanuts. Avon may you always live in our memories.
