"...The good news is that the renewal of the Avon Theatre is finally complete, and what a truly beautiful transformation it is. Without changing the basic structure of the building or altering its seating capacity, the Avon has been made a far more comfortable place for its patrons, blessed with spacious lobbies, ample legroom, improved sightlines and copious washrooms.

And the former "black box" of its interior, which could loom so forbidding on occasion, has been replaced by warmly welcoming wood and a series of stylish architectural features that pay tribute to the past while evoking the present and greeting the future. All in all a superb job....." – Richard Ouzounian printed in the Toronto Star, Thursday May 30, 2002.
