The Avenue Theatre was located on Howard Avenue in downtown Biloxi. A first run house, it opened in the 1940’s and operated into the 1970’s. The Avenue Theatre, like the Don Theatre in Gulfport, had stadium type seating, with only a few rows up front of the stage with a sloped floor area. It was sold by its owner to Gulf States Theatres who closed it around the time they opened the Surf Side Twin Cinema.
