Avon Theater

Cincinnatus, NY 13040

Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

As improbable as it may seem, tiny Cincinnatus, N.Y. had two functioning theaters showing movies for a few years following World War I; the imposing Alhambra Opera House had opened in 1913 and was regularly showing movies not long after; and then in 1919 the Avon Theater, exclusively for movies, opened for business. Open only part-time (sometimes Saturdays only, other times Saturdays and Wednesdays, with the theater let out for meetings at other times), it was still operating in 1929.

While several photos and the location of the Alhambra Opera House are known, the Avon Theater is more mysterious. More information would be great to have.

I visited Cincinnatus today looking for possible buildings that could have housed the Avon Theater; the only candidate I could see is the former town hall building, which does have the right dimensions.
