Be Entertained at the Catalina Casino

Be Entertained at the Catalina Casino

Monday, October 4, 2010

The Catalina Casino received its name all the way from Italy! In Italian, the word “casino” means a gathering place. There is no actual gambling at this facility. Instead, this enormous 12 story building is divided into a fabulous grand ballroom and movie theater. The venue is also extremely popular for events and weddings.

Perched along the harbor, the Casino is certainly Avalon’s most distinctive landmark, and is close to the wonderfully stylish Avalon Hotel. The Casino was built in 1929 and has since been that choice venue for great entertainers, Broadways productions, and first run motion pictures. Tours of the Casino are available daily.

The Avalon Hotel staff is well educated on Catalina’s rich cultural history and eager to share their knowledge. Just ask when making reservations or checking in and they even provide free tickets to the Catalina Island Museum, which is located in the Casino.
