The Avondale Towne Cinema is part of the historic Avondale Estates Tudor Village building that was constructed in 1924 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Originally housing City Hall and the local U.S. Post Office, both were relocated in 1938 to construct the theater space that is now home to the Avondale Towne Cinema. Opened originally as the Avon Theater, the theater name was changed in 1966 to the Avondale Towne Cinema. The theater has a storied history as a live performance venue showcasing boxing, wrestling, Vaudeville shows, movies, plays, musicals, dance, and magic shows. But above all else, the Avondale Towne Cinema is best known for its rich history showcasing live music and as a popular music recording studio space. Artists who have graced the stage at the Avondale Towne Cinema include:
The Allman Brothers Band
Shooter Jennings & Jason Boland
Drivin’ N’ Cryin’
Jason & The Scorchers
Stratford-upon-Avon, which is the birthplace of William Shakespeare, was the inspiration for the founding of the city of Avondale Estates. And thus Avondale Estates, with its unmistakable Tudor Village, is uniquely suited to host a Shakespeare event. Come enjoy food and beverages in the Spring weather, bring the kids to enjoy the bounce house and face painting, and watch free performances by The Atlanta Shakespeare Company @ 2 pm (kids) and 3:30 pm in the Avondale Towne Cinema. This is a FREE EVENT. We will see you there!
