          "The Way",  starring Martin Sheen and directed by Emilio Estevez continues
      at the Avalon.  It is a powerful and inspirational story about family, friends,
      and the challenges we face while navigating an ever-changing and complicated
      world. The film receives three stars from Ann Hornaday of the Washington Post.

          "The Ides of March" continues with an all star cast including Ryan
      Gosling, George Clooney, Paul Giamatti, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Marisa
      Tomei.

           This Saturday's Weekend Family Matinees is free! The live Kaydee Puppet Show is sponsored
      by TTR Sotheby's International Realty agents Katherine Buckley, Claudia Donovan &
      Richard Seaton and Sally McLuckie. Kaydee Puppets use large, delightful moving mouth puppets, 
      guaranteed to appeal to children age 2 and above.  Stories told at this show: Jack & The Beanstalk, 
      The Three Billy Goats Gruff and The Three Pigs. Admission is as space allows.The show begins at 10 am.
       
           On Wednesday, November 9 at 8 pm Lions of Czech Film presents "Walking Too Far".
       It's Czechoslovakia, 1982 and the totalitarian regime seems interminable and imperishable. 
      Antonín, a member of the secret police, uneasy, tyrannical, perhaps psychopathic, is percolating 
      with desperation. Bored with everything, he aims his demons at an unattainable target – a 
      young woman named Klára. Antonín’s attempt to win Klára over pits him against the 
      regime’s traditional enemies and the system itself. 

           "J Edgar" arrives on November 11!.

          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  and is open for fresh java
      weekdays at 8am and weekends at 9am.
