Mayfair Theatre forced to close after landlord terminates lease
By Fred Sherwin

The Mayfair Theatre is closing its doors after a little more than a year in business.

The second run theatre had fallen well behind in its rent payments, forcing the landlord to terminate the lease.

The theatre's management made the surprising announcement on their Facebook page on Wednesday.

"The landlord has terminated the lease for the Mayfair Orleans and we have been required to close immediately... We have been trying to work with the landlord to come up with suitable arrangements so that the theatre could continue operating. We believed that progress on this front was being made but obviously this has not played out as we wanted it to. We want to thank all of our dedicated members and customers in Orleans. We really appreciate the support that has been provided to us over the past year. We want to remind everyone that we're still open for business at the Downtown Mayfair location."

The announcement comes eight months after the theatre successfully ran a membership drive to keep the doors open last spring. At that time they had 2,500 members.

(This story was made possible thanks to their generous support of our local business partners.)
