The Avalon Theater's "Dinner and A Movie" offers you the opportunity to see a great movie for free. Next Tuesday's showing of Hacksaw Ridge is the deal of the year!

You know how it works, right? You grab your friends and enjoy dinner at one of awesome downtown restaurants on Tuesday night. Then bring your receipt to the Avalon and they'll admit 2 patrons to the movie, absolutely FREE! Same day and date only, after 4:00 pm. Any restaurant from First Street to Seventh Street and from White Avenue to Pitkin Avenue.

Next week's screening of Hacksaw Ridge is a special value since the 2016 World War II film has been nominated for six Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor for Andrew Garfield's performance.

This film shares the World War II experiences of Desmond Doss, an American Pacific combat medic who as a member of the Seventh-Day Adventist church refuses to carry, or use, a firearm or weapon of any kind. Doss goes on to become the first conscientious objector to be awarded The Medal of Honor for his bravery during the Battle of Okinawa.

So guys, load up the crew and head downtown Junction Tuesday evening for an awesome night of food and entertainment. The film is Rated R for (prolonged violence and for intense realistically graphic sequences of war violence including grisly bloody images). So you may want to dine as early as possible that evening. That being said, to see this film for free just for supporting a downtown eating establishment, it's the deal of the year...at least so far.
