The theater is located on Western Ave., the NW corner of Central Ave. and Western. I will get an exact address when I go down there this weekend. There are a couple of old theaters I want to check out while I’m on the westside of the Phoenix Metro Area.

I grew up in Avondale..I remember my mom telling me about going to the movies there as a child in the 50’s. By the time I was born it was a grocery store,(Jeff’s). It then was closed down and opened in the early 1980’s as a arcade, which I went to frequently. I always wondered why this theater shut down as a kid, and I was hoping someone would someday buy the building and turn it back into a theater. I have pictures of the building which I will try to post as soon as I figure out how to. My parents still live in Avondale, and when I make my weekly visit, I drive down the old downtown to look at the building. There was some talk of restoring the theater as an arthouse theater as part of a revitalization project of old town Avondale, but nothing has happened as of yet.
