Grand Junction, CO 81501
The historic Avalon Theatre, which has been the cornerstone of downtown Grand Junction at 7th and Main Street for the past 90 years, has recently completed a $9.65 million renovation that ensures its position as one of the premier performing arts venues in Western Colorado for years to come.
Highlights of the renovation include: New seating: the Avalon will expand from 900 to a capacity of 1090 seats, allowing for larger audiences. Acoustic and digital audio/visual improvements: these improvements will not only allow the space to host larger acts, but will also make the Avalon a state of the art performance venue. The addition of a multi-purpose room: the Encore Hall will offer a smaller space for meetings and presentations without tying up the large performance area. The hall will accommodate the showing of smaller films and also provide excellent space for local groups to use.ADA: Updates to the theatre's ADA compliance, which includes a patron elevator and hearing loop will provide improvements to every guest's experience at the Avalon. New rooftop terrace: the rooftop will be able to host a variety of events such as receptions and weddings; catering services will make this a desirable space for both local and regional events and occasions.
Special care has been taken to both preserve the historic appeal of the Avalon while designing amenities for the future. Join us for the best films in the world, everyday.
