Looming above the harbor is this undisputed trademark of Avalon and Catalina Island. Built as a ballroom dancing hall by William Wrigley Junior in 1929, it hosted lavish parties with big bands during its heyday in the 1930s. Now it's primarily used for festivals and other special events. There are two ways to see the interior of the casino either by taking an architectural tour or watching a movie in the beautiful Art Deco theater. A silent film festival occurs here annually, for which the antique organ often provides the score. The Tour Center also sells tickets for various other sightseeing events and tours on Catalina Island.
