The Mayfair Theatre opened on November 11, 1936 with “Road to Glory”. It was named for the neighborhood in which it was located, with seating for 1,009. The theatre was designed by Philadelphia architect David Supowitz in the Art Deco style known as Streamline Moderne.
There was a mural on both side walls of the auditorium.
Originally, the theatre featured live stage shows and subsequent run movies but by 1940 went to movies only. By 1950, it went to a double features policy. Later the theatre alternated between single and double features. The Mayfair Theatre closed in 1985. It was later converted into a drugstore. In 2006, it became a bank.
