The Mayfair was outside the city limits and customers could smoke. The Fox Tower, managed by my cousin at Olive and Wishon, was also a second-run, double-feature theater that attracted some Mayfair customers. Those who attempted to smoke were scolded and, if persistent, kicked out.

Started watching saturday and sunday movies there in 1949 or 50. Was the only movie theater except for downtown and drive in’s. Had kids shows on stage on saturday’s, would bid squirt bottle caps for prizes.

As a naughty teenager, I remember seeing “racy” European movies at the Fine Arts Theatre, though I do not remember its International and Mayfair Theatres incarnations.

Ihe International Theatre was also known as the Mayfair and Fine Arts Theatre during its tenure as a motion picture theatre.
