Painting the Avenue Theatre


By Downey Arts Coalition

Downey Arts Coalition is a movement of several people, however this website is currently managed and updated by Andrew J Wahlquist.


  1. Avenue Theatre facade looks great. It has a retro feel and yet fits into the street scene as though it belonged. It takes a second look to realize it is a trompe l’oeil
    illusion – the first piece of public art on Downey Avenue. Congrats to its creators. Lorine

  2. It brings me joy to see that some effort has been taken to beautify the aging Avenue Theatre’s exterior. I used to go to that theatre as a kid. I hope that one day someone will come forward to renovate the building and use it for showcasing independent films. Its a part of Downey that shouldn’t be allowed to decay.
