The Avon Theatre features the best of independent, world and documentary films, foreign and Hollywood classics, and educational programming that will enhance the cultural richness of the downtown Stamford community.The Avon Theatre has been described as an eclectic and whimsical picture house, with a prevailing Neo-Colonial motif that incorporates traditional Art Deco themes. The theatre is highlighted by a strikingly original exterior facade, framed magnificently by a restored vertical “AVON” marquee that lights up the Connecticut sky at night. The theatre is bestowed with interior murals that were commissioned by a local artist, Oscar Glas. Those murals remain on display to this day and adorn the sidewalls of the main floor auditorium. Glas’ murals evoke a sense of local history by paying homage to the early settlers and Native Americans of coastal Stamford.
