The Avalon Theatre

The Avalon Theatre is a historic theatre located in downtown Easton, Maryland. Originally built as a cinema in 1921, at the cost of $100,000, The Avalon Theatre immediately became, as one newspaper reporter proclaimed, the “Showplace of the Eastern Shore.” Visually spectacular, another newspaper reporter made the bold statement that “no house in the South will compare with all its detail.” Its detail included leaded glass doors at every theatre entrance, an 18-ft dome with 148 lights, a 300 pipe electric-pneumatic organ, an electric player piano, and a ballroom on the second floor.
