Mayfair Theatre

Originally named the King Edward Picture Theatre, the Mayfair was built in 1914 and is one of the oldest surviving picture houses in New Zealand. Like the Playhouse, the Mayfair was converted for use as a theatre in the 1960s. Originally the building was owned and operated by the Dunedin Opera Company. Ownership passed to the Mayfair Theatre Charitable Trust in 2014. The building is Category 2 registered with Heritage New Zealand and protected in the District Plan.
