Are you allowed to draw 2 spells & then throw them both away if you don't like them in order to avoid having to draw a Corruption card? I think this card can be interpreted 2 ways.

Agreed, it's ambiguous. I'd play this as you may:

 

a) draw 2 spells and choose one to keep but gain a Corruption or

b) move to the streets

 

Wording is unclear, but generally speaking in Arkham it's rare being given a chance to "look" at something and then decide if you want to keep it and have a detriment or discard it with no pain.

 

My 2 cents, tho

I do like your interpretation & will play it this way.

I agree with Julia. You can either take a spell and a corruption card. Or you move to the street. But these options are mutually exclusive. It's one choice or the other. Despite the ambiguous wording you cannot look at the two spell cards, decide not to take either and then move to the street. No, if you choose to draw two spells you must keep one and take a corruption card. Or you can choose not to draw the spells and simply leave the area.
