Avalon Theatre

The Avalon Theatre is a state-of-the-art theatre at Fallsview Casino Resort. Built to accommodate approximately 1,500 guests, the design of the Avalon Theatre creates an extremely intimate entertainment experience, with the furthest seats less than 30 metres / 100 feet from the stage.

The Avalon Theatre was designed to be infinitely flexible. All 1,000 seats on the floor and mezzanine areas can be removed or re-arranged, thus allowing various seating plans and configurations, including banquet style, classroom style, dance floor and raised runway. The stage can even be converted into additional seating, creating a four-sided seating plan for events like boxing. This flexibility makes the Avalon suitable for a variety of events, including concerts, Broadway-style musicals, dance troupes and headlining entertainment.
