According to old timer Martinez citizens the street numbers on Escobar St. were redone and the new building where the Avalone Theatre was located is now the Contra Costa Community College District. (Escobar St. and Court St.)

The Avalon Theatre may have Opened in 1931 and Closed around circa 1958 based on some of the Citizens who grew up in the town of Martinez, Ca.
