      Opening this week is "The Debt" starring Helen Mirren and Tom Wilkinson.  This espionage thriller begins in 1997 as shocking news reaches retired Mossad secret agents Rachel and Stefan about their former colleague, David.  All three have been venerated for decades because of the mission they undertook in 1966 when the trio tracked down Nazi war criminal Vogel in East Berlin.  At great risk, the team's mission was accomplished...or was it?

      Continuing by popular demand is "The Help" which is described as "a good film, involving and wonderfully acted," by Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times.

      On Wednesday, Septemer 7 at 8 pm the Panorama of Greek Cinema presents "The Cow's Orgasm". Two high school gal pals buy into romantic dreams about love and marriage but, after a series of tragicomic incidents in their Greek village, topped off by a cow's emotional fulfillment, decide to go after a waiter/musician and that "cool" slaughterhouse director.

      The historic Avalon is an independent, nonprofit theater and is the oldest operating theater in Washington, DC.  Its cafe offers a variety of drinks, sandwiches, ice cream, wine and beer.  For showtimes, online ticket purchases, film trailers and to sign up for the Avalon weekly e-newsletter, visit http://www.theavalon.org
