GARNER | The Avery Theater Executive Committee has announced operational changes that will take effect on Jan. 5.

The Avery will no longer show movies on Sunday and Monday evenings. The Sunday matinee will continue.

If applicable, 3-D movies will be offered on Fridays only and on a limited basis. 3-D movies will be advertised in advance.

The Avery will discontinue Turn-Back-Tuesday movies due to grant and donation funds ending.

The Avery Committee encourages community members and businesses to sign up to volunteer at the concession stand. Volunteers allow the theater to keep overhead costs down.

Details on volunteering and how to sign-up can be found at

The Avery also depends on recurring groups of volunteers— service groups and businesses that “claim” a specific night on a recurring basis.

A member of the Avery Executive Committee will be contacting volunteer groups who are impacted by this change to discuss options.

New volunteer groups are always welcome.
