Avalon Casino Movie Theater

Instagram photos and videos at Avalon Casino Movie Theater

Couple of legends right here.
How incredible is Tess’s wedding dress!? Gonna be sharing lots from this uniquely colorful, creative, insanely energetic wedding on Catalina Island in the coming weeks.
A long day of top shelf fun! Played in an 8 piece group assembled by movie accompanist Michael Mortilla to play his new original score to Colleen Moore's 1929 silent film, 'Why Be Good'! The 1929 Avalon Theater was a gem of historic design & the town was a charming golf cart powered coastal oasis. I got all the cold ocean breeze I could get my normally landlocked hands on.  #uprightbass #musician #avalon #catalinaisland
#bts at the Silent Film Festival 🎞
The Avalon Theatre is located on the first floor of the large beige building next to the water, that also houses a casino! 🎰 💸 The theatre is lovely inside, historic for it’s incredible acoustics & colorful murals. Movies are shown in the theatre at 7️⃣:3️⃣0️⃣ nightly! 🎬🍿🌊 When we visited we saw Captain Marvel! Side note ~ who else out there has already watched Avengers Endgame... twice? Would love to watch it for the third time in Avalon 🤩 • • • • • #catalinaisland #avaloncasino #avalontheatre #avengersassemble #avengersendgame #captainmarvel #godotrip #sunnydaytravels #viatortravel #islandvibez #beachvibez #travelwithaninsider #tripandtravel #bucketlisttravel #nytimestravel #condenasttraveller #travelchannel #travelandleaisure #usatodaytravel #travelcompanion #iamatraveler #travelcouples #yastravel #roamtheplanet #travelust #cntraveler #coupleswhotravel #welivetoexplore #natgeotravel

The white building on the right is called the “casino” which means in Italian terms, gathering place. The islands only movie theatre with a museum.. found dat pretty cool 🤷🏾‍♂️

1929 Art Deco at the Catalina Casino—with a ballroom frequented by all the greats like Bob Hope, Bogart, John Wayne, George Orwell, Orson Wells + home of the first talking picture house in the world.
Did you know that the word ‘casino’ does not actually denote a place of gambling? Or at least it didn’t until quite recently. When Catalina Island’s Casino was commissioned by William Wrigley Jr, the word in Italian simply denoted a place of gathering, a meeting place for entertainment and dancing. Wrigley intended it to be THE place for entertainment and dancing on Catalina Island. And it was! Benny Goodman earned his reputation as the “King of Swing” in the massive top floor ballroom which is surrounded by the columned portico in this photo that offers 365 degree photos of Catalina Island, the town of Avalon and the Bay. Cecile B. DeMille once screened his latest films in the Wrigley’s private viewing room at the Casino. The green rooms hosted Errol Flynn, Cary Grant and more. Even now, the Avalon Theatre on the ground floor still shows first-run movies nightly at 7:30 p.m. and while the latest tech plays those movies now, the projection rooms still house the original state-of-the-art equipment that was installed in the early 1900’s to usher in the era of talking pictures under a ceiling of the most stunning Art Deco murals completed by John Gabriel Beckman. 24 karat gold stars add to the feeling of Hollywood glamour that still seems to infuse the whole building but they’re mere icing on the cake when you consider all the history the Casino has been a part of since it was completed on May 29, 1929. It was then, and still is, one of the most important buildings on Catalina Island & I really enjoyed learning about it through my hosted ‘Behind the Scenes’ tour with @visitcatalinaisland. 90 minutes flew by way too fast for me and I was glad I’d opted for the longer tour over the 45 minute version. I could have lingered up here for 90 minutes alone. From where I took this photo, I could even see bright orange Garibaldi fish swimming in the deep teal waters of the Bay and a lone seal poked its head out as if to say “hello 👋🏼”. 2019

Had a Ball with the @catalinaconservancy this weekend, celebrating @campemeraldbay‘s new #emeraldbayoutdooracademy and the newly repaired Airport in the Sky
Yesterday was one for the books! . . I had the absolute pleasure as modeling as the exact replica of the airport runway on Catalina Island for The Catalina Island Conservancy Ball in honor of the Civil-Military Runway Repair Project. It was a gorgeous event with gorgeous people on one of the most gorgeous islands I’ve ever been on! . . Thank you again and as always @champagnecreativegroup for the most incredible opportunities! #mile22 #catalinaconservancy #catalinaisland #conservancyball #civilmilitaryrunwayrepairproject #catalinacasino #walktherunway #champagnecreativegroup

I was told yesterday when they were watching our parasailing video... ‘wow, you’re really Living.’ In my mind I’m like yeah, that’s how it’s supposed to be isn’t it?
What a beautiful night for all ya bullshit 💩🙃
The Avalon Theatres high elliptical ceiling, covered with 60,000 individual squares of silver leaf, is inset with tiny twinkling lights to evoke nighttime stars. Murals by John Gabriel Beckman, who also painted those in Hollywood's famed Chinese Theatre, cover the walls with romantic scenes of the island. The full-scale pipe organ, however, installed to provide musical accompaniment during the last days of the silent film era, may be the most wondrous draw of all. Built by the Page Organ Company of Lima, Ohio, it includes 16 ranks of pipes (with 73 to 85 pipes per rank) in the ceiling lofts. The organ, now one of only four surviving Page Organs in the world, was added in 2003 to the American Theatre Organ Society's National Registry of Historic and Significant Instruments, and it is still played live on Friday and Saturday nights before the feature performance. And each year it stars in a silent film festival that raises funds for the Catalina Island Museum . . . . . . . #catalinaisland #california #catalinachamber #catalinaislandconservancy #catalinawinemixer  #saltescape #vitaminsea #digitalnomads #travelfolk #lostfam #visitcalifornia  #channelisland #casino #islandlifestyle #islandtime #tropicalislands #desertisland #ndemik #endemic #travelgoals #bucketlistadventure #history #pipeorgans #lapos #avalontheatre #visitcatalina #wrigleys #historyfacts #funfacts
Took a tour of the Catalina Casino today. It's a theater and dance hall- no gambling here. Constructed in 1929 and cost 2 million dollars. Start to finish only took 14 months. Pretty amazing building with a lot of history!
🎰 Casinos don’t always involve gambling !! Isn’t it strange to believe after inhaling Las Vegas? 🤣 . . . 📍That architectural marvel in the picture is ‘Catalina Casino’ which provides a dramatic welcome to visitors on Avalon Harbor for 100 years. The most important secret to know about the Catalina Casino is that there’s no gambling inside that iconic building ..... ‘SWIPE LEFT’ to see the closer look of the building! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• The Catalina Casino takes its name from the Italian definition of the casino, which is more along the lines of a house or a gathering place than a gambling hall — which is why there’s actually never been gambling at the Catalina Casino. The iconic twelve-story-high building with its signature circular architecture and tall pillars sits on Avalon Harbor, and it’s a classic California landmark. If you didn’t know any better, you’d think it’s a Greek temple overlooking the Mediterranean. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• For more than 80 years, the Casino has been entertaining — just not in the ways most people think. The ballroom and onsite Avalon Theatre often showcase special events and showings of first-run movies, and a stone’s throw away is golfing, shopping, and some pretty epic boat tours — after all, it’s right on the water.💦 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #losangelesblogger #catalinacasino #catalinaisland #flashesofdelight #bbctravel #mytinyatlas #losangelesblog #avalon #justfabstyle #discoverunder5k #wanderlusttravel #travelbloggerindia #lifestylebloggerindia #lensculture #weownthenight_la #travelgirlsgetaways #forahappymomemt

I don't usually go see movies on vacation, but next time I'm in Catalina I want to. The acoustics in the Casino/theatre are insane. The views are pretty cool too. #catalinaisland #catalinacasino #cali

Build something up for all to see. A monument, your fellow man, or your coin. Just build it up
