Originally opened as the 1,200-seat Strand Theatre in 1916, the entrance was off the street down a narrow passage. It was taken over by Amalgamated Theatres Ltd. in 1948 and was re-named Mayfair Theatre.
The cinema was renovated in 1959, and with 300 less seats, it was equipped for 3-strip Cinerama screenings from 5th November 1959 to 28th November 1964 on the giant 65ft x 25ft 146 degree screen. Afterwards single-strip Cinerama projection was used.
It was renovated again to a flatter screen early-1970’s and was closed and demolished in 1984.
