++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
SPECIAL NOTE:
For those of you who have longed for us to revisit our "art house" roots, please also bear in mind that with that type of film comes reduced showtimes and fewer days of operation. 
Many of you may recall for the first 5 years of our existence we were only open on weekends!
Please check our showtimes VERY carefully!
We are going to start bringing in more of the art & indy films, but, they will play in a whole different manner than when we play a big mainstream movie.
ALWAYS CALL OUR HOTLINE (422-8151) TO VERIFY SHOWTIMES!!

CHERI'  (PG13) MICHELLE PFEIFFER is, in my not-so-humble opinion, one of the most beautiful women to ever grace the silver screen.
(And she is a very good actress too!) The problem is: We don't see her that much any more! Even though there are those who think she looks better now, at 51 years old, then she ever has (now there's a statement!) I guess the poobahs in Hollywood think she is "over-the-hill"! There's a laugh! Come see a timeless lovely in a fun movie that fits the Avon like a glove!

EASY VIRTUE  (PG13) When we opened this frothy adaptation of the Noel Coward play last week, we had no idea how many of you were going to really, really like it! True, there are a lot of COLIN FIRTH fans out there, and a period piece with him and foxy JESSICA BIEL and the always-superb KRISTEN SCOTT-THOMAS is almost irritable in its description! Add in the music of Cole Porter and you have a Jazz-age winner that you will love!
EASY VIRTUE (PG13)

HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE (PG) There is nothing I can say here that has not been said. The Harry Potter books and movies are a bonafide bonanza, and you are either going to get down to see this latest installment, or your are not. This series has a firm place in Hollywood heaven!! Always astounding and engrossing!

THE IRON HORSE (1924) The recently-restored John Ford masterpiece!
THE LODGER (1926)  Alfred Hitchcock's seminal, and recently-restored classic!

BARDELAYS THE MAGNIFICENT (1926) John Gilbert in this long-thought-lost adventure!

Seeing one of the silent classics of the Golden Age in the 1916 vintage Avon Theatre, is a transporting and even rather eerie and remarkable trip through the archaeology of cinema!!

At this point, we are planning on being closed for Decatur Celebration Weekend! (Aug. 7th)

We endured the milling crowds and lack of parking for years, but, we saw an opportunity this year where we could actually take a break!!
So, as we are saying: "Enjoy Celebration! We're on vacation!"



We will re-open on Friday, Aug. 14th with a whole new slate of films!!


Come See Me Soon!
-Skip Huston
