Located in the Battlefield district to the south of Glasgow city centre. The Mayfair Cinema was built and operated by an independent company. It was opened on 1st February 1934 with Madeleine Carroll in “I Was A Spy”.

It was taken over by the Associated British Cinemas(ABC) chain in September 1935.

ABC closed the Mayfair Cinema on 30th June 1963. It became a warehouse, and was demolished in 1980. A block of flats was built on the site.

This photograph shows the theatre’s exterior before ABC took over.

This webpageshows the restoration of the original stained class panels bearing the words “The Mayfair” that can be seen in the photograph over the center doors.
