A NOTE FROM THE HEAD HONCHO...
So, everyone is wondering if we will be charging a 3D surcharge on the 3D movies...
The answer is YES, but not as much as the "other guys".
Hickory Point and the Strand charge $3.00 on top of their already higher ticket prices, but at the Avon we will only charge a $2.00 3D surcharge.
Keep in mind our regular tickets are lower than theirs are too!
Those of you with "Season Passes", "V.I.P. Passes" and "White Tickets" will still have to pay the $2.00 3D charge. (These passes and promotional tickets were done for REGULAR showings, not premium 3D presentations.)
Gift Certificates will be charged accordingly.
I hope you understand we had to make a substantial investment in order to offer 3D, and the surcharge is our way of trying to recoup that.

Personally, I would've rather not gone the 3D route, but you all know that any theater who is not 3D capable in this current business climate, is really skirting the edge of viability. (Especially in a competitive market!)

I hope you appreciate we didn't just match the competition and charge the $3.00!

Thanks, 
Skip

Have You Signed Up for My Next Film Class yet??
Ya' better hurry! It starts Thursday, April 1st!!!
SILENT MOVIE CLASSICS---PART 6!!

The continuation of our popular film and discussion series on the classics of the silent screen!

A 6 WEEK COURSE STARTING THURSDAY, APRIL 1st  and ending THURSDAY, MAY 6th!!

This 6 week class and discussion film series will meet every Thursday @ 6:30 PM starting April 1st at The Avon Theatre. 
Cost is $60, in cash or check  (no credit cards, please), checks payable to "Ripper Entertainment".
NOTE: This class is NOT payable through Richland!


Unlike all of our previous film classes, we WILL reveal SOME (but not ALL) of the movies to be screened beforehand.



WINGS (1927) The FIRST movie to win the "Best Picture" Oscar! Clara Bow and Buddy Rogers.
THE  SON OF THE SHEIK (1926) Rudolph Valentino in his best, and last film!

THE WIND (1928) Lillian Gish in the unforgettable ultra-classic!

THE DOCKS OF NEW YORK (1928) Extremely rare Josef von Sternberg directed masterpiece!

.and MORE to be decided!! (Maybe a Douglas Fairbanks? Maybe a D.W. Griffith Epic? Maybe Greta Garbo?)

Seeing one of the silent classics of the Golden Age of Cinema in the 1916  vintage Avon Theatre, is a "transporting" and even rather eerie & remarkable journey through the archaeology of the cinema! Many of these films were considered LOST until just recently!! This is an unforgettable experience for the true film buff!!
