Avalon Theatre

 

 

 

"Avalon Theatre"

1995

As a boy growing up in quiet Avalon in the 1950's and 1960's the Saturday night movie at the Avalon Theatre in the Casino was the high point of the week.  When I moved to the mainland for college I found that I missed that beautiful art deco theatre.  My primary reasons for taking this photo of the Theatre were to capture it in it's best condition, and as a reminder of those wonderful days growing up on Catalina. It had just been refurbished in 1995, inspiring me to take the photo at that time.

I needed three attempts and three trips to Catalina to properly capture the Theatre.  I used a special panoramic camera, a VERY long exposure and specific film & filters.
