A staple in Portland entertainment options, this theatre/nickel arcade is the ultimate spot to waste away an afternoon inside on a rainy day.
Avalon, like a Ground Kontrol for kids, offers plenty of amusing nickel games that swindle your coins, but also better deals on full-fledged arcade games such as Terminator shoot 'em ups and Taiwanese auto racing.
Discount second-run movies and nickel games that actually cost a nickel. Skeeball & more. Great rainy day destination.
If you've rolled all your loose change and now wonder: what can I do with this roll of nickels? Head to the Avalon theater and the wunderland nickel arcade where all the games run on, you guessed it - nickels! If you don't catch a bargain priced movie, you need to pay a small cover to go into the arcade. The games aren't the latest technology has to offer but it's a fun afternoon for the kids and kids-at-heart.
fun place – perfect place to go see the movies you dont want to pay full price for
they still play the movie even if only 2 people are in there watching
the arcade doesnt have the newest games but its nice to have everything run on nickels.
and you dont have to pay to get it if you just come for the movie
good place to kill time without spending a fortune
