The Avalon Theatre opened in 1926 in a two story building on Main Street near Center Street. The theatre was built by Maureen and Lyan Peterson. It was a very popular place for entertainment through the 1950’s. When television came into Fillmore, the attendance dropped off; however, the theater rebounded and still continued to operate as a movie house until around 2015 when it closed and was seeking funds to purchase a digital projector. The theatre was sold in late-spring of 2019 and there are hopes it could reopen as a movie theatre.
There is retail space on both sides of the entrance to the theatre with apartments above. The small triangle-shaped marquee is still in good shape with large neon letters spelling out the name of the theatre above the marquee.
