Americana on tap at the Avon

Speaking of the Avon Theatre, owner Skip Huston sent out a reminder last week that his next series of film classes, offered through Richland Community College, will begin this coming Thursday, January 29, at 6:30 p.m. The theme this time ’round will be “Americana at the Movies, Part 2,” which will concern “any film that celebrates and chronicles aspects of the American experience” per the Head Honcho, and as usual the selections remain under wraps until class is in session!

Huston encourages movie lovers to sign up quickly, either by contacting Richland’s Jennifer Peterson at (217) 875.7211, ext. 353, or registering at the Avon on Thursday night just before the eight-week course kicks off. (The cost will be $80, for those inclined.) Make it exciting, people, and don’t forget to load up on that Avon popcorn! Except, of course, if you decide to take notes; I highly doubt that notebook paper and real buttah get along too well.

The Avon is located at 426 N. Water St. in downtown Decatur.
