News About This Theater
- Jan 5, 2009 — Mayfair Theatre plans
This theatre opened as the Santa Monica Opera House on December 12, 1911. Presenting legitimate theatre and movies, it was soon renamed Majestic Theatre.
In 1967, it became the Mayfair Theatre and closed as a movie theatre in July 1973. It became the Mayfair Music Hall and can be viewed along the popular 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica.
Sadly, the theatre was damaged in the Northridge earthquake on January 17, 1994, and sat empty and unused until January 2011, when it was demolished, leaving only the façade standing.
At the time of closure, it was used for comedy and music acts.
It was one of four theatres in downtown Santa Monica, others being Fox Criterion Theatre, El Miro Theatre and the Hitching Post Theatre.
