Avon Theatre Partners with History of the Heartland Committee for Movie Featuring Decatur in 1955

Skip Huston of the Avon Theatre has partnered with the History of the Heartland committee in order to provide the chance for the public to see “Our Decatur-1955”.  The hour-long movie, which will be shown on August 13th, will focus on Decatur businesses in 1955, many of which are fondly remembered but have long since gone out of business. The movie also boasts scenes of downtown Decatur during its heyday.

”This is the closest thing you will ever find to a real time machine! The Avon Theater, through some very fortunate circumstances, has the ONLY copy of this hour-long movie about Decatur businesses in 1955!” said Huston.

The first 50 people will be the only movie-goers admitted to the Avon Theatre, as they follow State social distancing guidelines.  Tickets are not available for purchase. Attendees must wear a mask and follow social distancing guidelines.
