The Avalon Theatre was opened on August 4, 1936 with Bobby Breen in “Let’s Sing Again”. It had a seating capacity of 510. It was closed in April 1958. On December 15, 1972 it reopened as the New Century Theatre.
It was renamed Marysville Cinema on October 15, 1976. It is a nice theatre located in the heart of downtown Marysville. It is a first-run theatre with admission just $4 at anytime.
The Marysville Cinema is family owned and operated by a local family since 2000. The largest screen seats approximately 200, with around 100 seats in the medium sized screen and 50 seats in the small screen. The folks here are always friendly and nice, and are always smiling. Some of the decor could be updated, but what they have done with the place since 2000 is wonderful.
The price of admission is extemly low in comparison to other theatres in surrounding cities. You can buy a ticket, drink and popcorn for next to nothing and still go home with money in your pocket. I am not sure how they do it, but they do.
The owners are a young couple with children and have always taken the time to talk or tell you about the movies. They take time to listen and it really feel like they want your business. I have stopped going to the larger theaters, and for the last five years have gone here to support them. All in all, I would give them and over 8 out of 10, only because of the decor, but everything else is top notch.
Sadly, the Marysville Cinema was closed in December 2009.
