VENTURA, CA — The S. Charles Lee designed Mayfair Theater will be demolished to make room for a new housing development in August.

The building was gutted by fire three years ago, but the marquee and facade still stand. Some community members have gotten donations to remove the marquee and store it for an as yet unknown project. For more info, contact me by e-mail at .

Drove by there not ten minutes ago and wondered when the axe would fall…

Glad to hear that the marquee will be saved. I would detour off 101 whenever driving to LA over the last few years and check if this theatre was still standing. The extant of the fire damage was indeed total loss of the interior and roof, with only the concrete shell of the building left and the marquee and entrance.
