The Avon Theatre has been described as an eclectic and whimsical picture house, with a prevailing Neo-Colonial motif that incorporates traditional Art Deco themes. The theatre is highlighted by a strikingly original exterior facade, framed magnificently by a restored vertical "AVON" marquee that lights up the Connecticut sky at night.
The theatre is bestowed with interior murals that were commissioned by a local artist, Oscar Glas. Those murals remain on display to this day and adorn the sidewalls of the main floor auditorium. Glas' murals evoke a sense of local history by paying homage to the early settlers and Native Americans of coastal Stamford.
