Movies, Comedy, and More Coming to The Avalon Theatre in July

July is when we celebrate the birth of America and The Avalon Theatre is celebrating with a Patriotic Film Series.  These films were chosen with an eye on the USA, they will inspire you, re-ignite your passion, and make you proud to be an American!

The Patriotic Film Series kicks off on Saturday, July 13 at 2:00 pm with the 2012 Stephen Spielberg film LINCOLN.  With the nation embroiled in still another year with the high death count of Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln brings the full measure of his passion, humanity and political skill to what would become his defining legacy: to end the war and permanently abolish slavery through the 13th Amendment. Having great courage, acumen and moral fortitude, Lincoln pushes forward to compel the nation, and those in government who oppose him, to aim toward a greater good for all mankind.  Directed by Steven Speilberg, LINCOLN stars Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Tommy Lee Jones, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.


A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN, starring Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, Lori Petty, Madonna, and Rosie O'Donnell hit the big screen on Friday, July 19 at 7:00 pm.  Penny Marshalls’ classic gives a look at the first women's professional baseball league is set during World War II and focuses on the rivalry between sisters, one a sweet-swinging catcher and the other a pouty, impulsive pitcher, who play on the same team, which is managed by a washed-up, hard-drinking ex-Major Leaguer.


Rounding out the Patriotic Film Series is Wolfgang Petersen’s AIR FORCE ONE on Saturday, July 27 at 7:00pm.  After making a speech in Moscow vowing to never negotiate with terrorists, President James Marshall (Harrison Ford) boards Air Force One with his family (Wendy Crewson, Liesel Matthews) and advisers. When a group of terrorists led by Ivan Korshunov (Gary Oldman) hijacks the flight, the President's principles are put to the test. Feigning escape, ex-solider Marshall stows away in the aircraft and must race against time to rescue his family and everyone else on board.


But the movies don’t stop there in the month of July.  The Avalon Theatre is also partnering with the Union County Humane Society to present THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS on Saturday, July 20 at 2pm.  A portion of all ticket sales will be donated to the Union County Humane Society to help them with many of their expenses.  Join us as we support another great Union County institution.  The Avalon Theatre will also be celebrating Harry Potter’s birthday with a showing of HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER’S STONE on Wednesday, July 31 at 7pm.
