Sadly, the stand-alone theaters along Manila’s Rizal Avenue are all gone. Ideal, Ever, State, Universal, Dalisay, Odeon, Galaxy and Avenue Theaters, among others.

President and Mrs. Manuel Luis Quezon were the guests of honor when Avenue Theater opened to the public in 1939.

Avenue Theater had a sitting capacity of 1,569.

The land and building were owned by the heirs of M. Rufino, Inc.

The theater was owned by Luzon Theaters, Inc.

Ralph Brambles Sr. was the theater supervisor during the ‘50s.

Avenue Theater was home of Paramount & RKO Radio Pictures.
