The Mayfair Theater was originally a single-screen theater which opened prior to 1941 and had a seating capacity of 1,500, including a balcony. At some point during the late-1980’s or early-1990’s, it was converted to a triplex.

The last time I was there they still had an old vending machine that poured soda for you into a paper cup (remember that?).

The Mayfair Triplex had closed by the Summer of 2010.

I did a video screening here the other night. They are using the balcony as a projection booth for the original screen. Very strange looking up from there seeing the original seat still in place and chandelier too. I went into the original booth and was attacked by pigeons. The projectors are not there but everything else is still in place including tons of very old trailers and film.

The current Google Street View, the front is still in great shape, can still look through clear glass on the doors – nothing’s boarded up. I wonder if it’s currently being used for anything. A very ornate fa├žade which (although completely painted white) is still in very good shape.

Interesting from the aerial view: Long lobby and then you turn left to enter the auditorium – fairly wide auditorium. But then the stage house is backing up against the street – surprising to see valuable street frontage taken up with the stagehouse!
