Opened as the Wilson Theatre, it was listed as open by 1931. It was renamed Avalon Theatre in 1940. The theatre was owned by H.L. Pettit who also owned the Highway 14 Drive-In and Pettit’s Drive-In. The Avalon Theatre seated 345 and was still open in 1957.

The Ava Family Theatre had been closed, but was reopened in the mid-2000’s. Movies are shown each night, but on Thursdays admission is free for films and live music.
