According to a reference in "This is Great Neck", published by the Great Neck League of Women Voters, the Mayfair Theatre possessed a unique attribute for a theatre constructed in the early-1900’s; an auditorium with a sloping floor. Admission was 15 cents.
Although a 1925 image of the theatre on the Long Island Memories site originally indicated the theatre was on South Station Plaza, my inquiries into the exact address determined that it was, in fact on the North Station Plaza. Presumably the Memories site will be corrected by the Great Neck Library.
According to the 1927 Directory of Motion Picture Theatres, Metropolitan Territory, the seating capacity was 350. Coincidentally, 1927 is the last year the Mayfair Theatre was listed in the telephone book. In 1928 the only theatre listed in Great Neck was the Playhouse, probably the year it opened.
Although most buildings on the North Station Plaza have been granted landmark status the Mayfair Theatre, unfortunately, was demolished before such action was taken. There is now a bank on the site.
