Avalon, CA 90704
Experience the Rich Cultural History of this Iconic Building
This 45-minute walking tour highlights some the Casino’s most beautiful features, including John Gabriel Beckman’s soaring murals, which grace the Casino’s exterior façade and the walls of Avalon Theatre.
Prepare to be transported back in time as you enter the lobby of Avalon Theatre, which has been fully restored to its original grandeur, complete with solid black walnut panels, art deco furniture, Tiffany-esque lights and curved ceilings adorned with gold-leaf accents.
See the theatre’s original 1929 pipe organ, one of the last of its kind in the world. Hear the theatre’s amazing acoustics, which were studied and replicated by designers of New York’s Radio City Music Hall. Feel the historic vibe of the world-famous ballroom, a 12,000 square foot masterpiece of design, where thousands once grooved to the sounds of big band music. Be sure to step out on the Casino’s Romance Promenade, which offers some of the most spectacular views of Avalon.
