You might be right. Google gives the address as 1 Casino Way, Avalon, CA. That address doesn’t map correctly either.

I sat in the seats last weekend and they are very comfortable and new feeling. I’m sure they replaced the original seats with these at some point and put fewer than original to accommodate the continuously expanding exteriors of the American public. They did a really nice job because the sides of the seats look original, at least on the aisle.

A unique and beautiful interior and exterior. I am glad the Avalon theatre is so well maintained.

Hey, does anyone have any further info on the “Silent Movie Festival” mentioned above??

Have only been there once…but loved it. Especially since during the tour, we were privileged with a screening of a Buster Keaton short….definitely the true genius of the Silent Film era.

What is the definition of “atmospheric”?

Considering the ceiling—even minus clouds and a bordering Spanish village—could this be called an atmospheric?
