I took seven pictures and a short video of the marquee in December 2010. The pictures and video are visible here.

This page still needs updated for the new website (which has a history section and a dandy photo gallery) that Lost memory linked to on May 3, and to include the architectural firm of Tucker & Howells (currently misidentified as Howell and Tucker in the intro.)

The “Related Websites” link should be changed to the Trustees Theater website. Here is a May 2008 photo.

I was born and raised in Savannah; left when I was 12 in 1963; I remember the AVON well. Dave M’s explanation helps me understand the set up much better; I remember crossing the alley. And the old lady I remember particularly well…not for the roasted peanuts, but for the BOILED peanuts she used to sell. Here’s another question: history of the old STATE THEATER that was across Broughton from the AVON; I seem to remember its concession stand was outdoors. By the time I was old enough to start going to movies on Saturdays, it was demolished.

The theater diagionally across Broughton was the Avon. The theater was actually located across the lane behind the entrance building. The last time I was in Savannah it was demolished, and a parking garage had been built where the theater stood. The entrance building held the ticket booth and a concession stand and was just a walkway from Broughton Street through to the theater building. The building next door to the theatre (corner of Broughton and Abercorn) was a Woolworth’s. There also used to be an old lady who used to sit in front of the theater on a folding chair, using a cardboard box as a table, selling roasted peanuts every day. Thanks for the flashback…

Will be in Savannah over Easter weekend so will check out all of these Savannah theatres including the Sushi restaurant with original theatre ceiling!

Was in Savanah recently and saw this theater, as well as the Lucas and the Savanah. Diagionally across Broughton is another old theater, which is now a Sushi restaurant that has retained the old theater’s ceiling. Does anyone know what was the name of this now closed theater?
