Operations at the Avalon ..., 13 Sept 2015 [cached]
Operations at the Avalon should be about $40,000 in the black this year, said Debbie Kovalik, executive director of the Grand Junction Visitor and Convention Bureau.
In years past, the city of Grand Junction subsidized operations at the city-owned Avalon, anywhere between $20,000 to $80,000 a year. The theater lost $80,000 in 2008, before Kovalik took over operations and changed the business model away from the Cinema at the Avalon.
"We haven't yet lost money on the movies," Kovalik said.
Kovalik said the city's role in the Avalon is not to bring in performance acts; that's the role of private promoters.
The popularity of the space was a surprise to Avalon officials, Kovalik said.
"That's because the air conditioning and heating work," Kovalik said.
Debbie Kovalik, department ..., 21 May 2015 [cached]
Debbie Kovalik, department director of convention and visitor services for Grand Junction, said the conversations with May's representatives did not include them declining to sign a contract because they didn't agree with the terms.
For the past two months, May had been scheduled to do a make-up show on July 11 at the Avalon. However, May's representatives canceled the show and gave no indication to Avalon officials that they wanted to reschedule a performance sometime in the future, Kovalik said.
Kovalik said the only additional contract provisions that were out of the norm for Two Rivers Convention Center to ask for were that May did not disparage the city of Grand Junction, that promoters honor make-up tickets for about 70 people who signed a list requesting reimbursement, and provide extra security.
When May's representatives did not agree to the provision that May could not rip on the city, Two Rivers officials demurred and determined they would "let that slip," Kovalik said.
Kovalik said the city also asked May's promoters to work with local show-goers to reimburse their tickets.
"It's so wrong on every level," Kovalik said about the characterization that the July show fell through because of any fault of city officials.

All this appears to help pull in more tourists, with receipts from the city's 3 percent lodging tax up 17.4 percent through September of this year, compared with the same period in 2004 - one of the best showings in the state, according to Debbie Flynn Kovalik, head of the Grand Junction Visitor and Convention Bureau.
But the best indication of the area's emergence as a place to relax and enjoy life, she suggests, may be the opening of not one, but two party-rental stores - whose tents and tables are enabling wineries to host catered tasting dinners at $50 a head.
"The quality of the experience has changed," Kovalik says. "We're pulling in groups like the Colorado Parks and Recreation Association.

And that's music to the ears of someone such as Debbie Kovalik, executive director of the Grand Junction Visitor & Convention Bureau.
For years, Kovalik and the bureau have promoted such events, and the region is now starting to see crowds return to the Grand Valley to attend them.
"We are seeing a really strong increase in business coming in here just in the last three months," said Kovalik, adding that most hotels in the valley were hanging their "no vacancy" signs this weekend.
