Save the Avenue Theater in Downey

The Avenue Theater was built in 1922. It is the last of the three "movie houses" that once graced Downey Ave. It is in danger of being redeveloped into affordable (low and moderate income) housing by the city. It is part of the revitalization of Downtown Downey. If you would rather see the Avenue restored and reopened as a movie/live theater venue for all to enjoy, please sign the online petition and spread the news to others.
Thank you!!!
