Avalon Theatre, 3451 SE Belmont Street, SE Portland

Awe, gee, whiz. I love this neon!






A bit I found at the Web site for the Avalon, and its sister Milwaukie Cinema--I don't have any photos of it.

Now showing movies in two great theatres. We will be showing movies all day every day, all presented in surround sound. Our snack bar will be open with candy, soda pop, ice cream, and enough popcorn to satisfy any appetite. With the best prices in town seats will be only $2.50 for adults and $2.00 for children 11 & under and seniors, starred attractions may be $4.00 for adults and $3.00 for kids under 12 and seniors.
Avalon & Milwaukie both will run as a Wunderland Video Arcade as well. They are fully loaded and ready for hours of fun for all ages. Separate tickets will be sold for the movies and the game room admissions. Now Showing: CORALINE, GRAN TORINO, FRIDAY THE 13TH, BEDTIME STORIES, HOTEL FOR DOGS, PAUL BLART:MALL COP, THE CURIOUS CASE
OF BENJAMIN BUTTON. Have you seen any of these movies? Recommendations, please.

Ooooops! I KNOW you come from Mississippi!!! Where was my brain?!? LOL! Well, I made the correction so now everyone will know where you TRULY come from! And how cool about the lady recognizing you! Another Oregon blogger had someone come up to her in a Goodwill store in Oregon City and tell her she read that lady's blog. Small world, isn't it?!

My wife and two boys lived for 25 years on 28th & Taylor. At the height of the early video arcade craze i spent a lot of yesterdays in this theater with the boys playing video. Now one son is in LA heading up the BIM dept of a large Architectural firm... the computer/3d training was honed shooting spaceships and villains, much to my wife's chagrin!

My Dear Hubby had an aunt who lived on 26th and Taylor for years, practically neighbors to Michael. Why is it I keep finding what a small world we live in when I visit here?!
