Some of my best memories of childhood movie going were at this theater… either from the summer of 1969 or 1970. In particular, I saw what had to be the most unusual double feature ever… “With Six, You Get Eggroll” and “West Side Story”

I worked there in 1969 and 1970. The theater was operated by Jack Greenberg in 1969 and he bought the pier and subleased operating the theater to Hunts in 1970. Part of my job as projectionist was to supervise the circular distribution on Thursday. Many of the distributors (they were paid in a 4 corner pass- see four movies, each time the doorman rips a corner) would just throw away the circulars and not distribute them, hence they needed supervision. Jack Greenberg booked the theater in 1969 (not Milgram during this time period) and Bud Gross Manager of the Harbor in Stone Harbor booked it for Hunt’s from 1970 onward…

This was a Milgram theater in 1967, per the FDY of that year.

This location, 29th street at the Ocean, is now a building that houses three businesses… a pizza shop, arcade, and an ice cream shop.

The Avalon had a unique marketing strategy…every Thursday during the Summer the local kids would show up in the morning at the theatre and get a supply of “movie circulars” that they would distribute throught Avalon and the neighboring towns of Stone Harbor and Sea Isle City. Their “pay” for this was a weekly pass to the movies !!
