Mayfair Theatre Opens Monday Night to “The Blue Danube”

Mayfair_Theatre_plaque_smallSlipping quietly and unostentatiously into the entertainment life of the city, the new Mayfair theatre opens its doors to the public on Monday when the premiere will be thrown on the screen at seven o’clock. At a quarter to the hour the public will be admitted and the first nighters will have a little time to revel in the beauties of Mayfair before becoming absorbed in the screen attractions.
