A sack full of popcorn, a gallon of cheap soda and a mind-numbing two-hour action movie are not the draw of the Avon Theatre in Stamford. Independent films, unique events and thought-provoking discussions are. “I don’t think there’s anything comparable” in Fairfield County, says Bridget Stokes, director of communications. “We do have all these fantastic programs.” In June, films buffs can enjoy an evening with Steve Guttenberg (promoting his new book), or catch a music footage night featuring the Grateful Dead (hosted by music archivist Bill Shelley), or simply watch the best new art house film. The cinema, originally constructed in the 1930s, opened its doors as a non-profit venture in 2004. Paid staff and a roster of volunteers run the cinema, which is funded in part by nearly 3,000 members.
