Ottawa's Independent Movie Theatres

Mayfair Theatre

Mayfair Theatre

Located at 1074 Bank Street

The Mayfair Theatre is a true Ottawa gem. Not only is the building and its unique architecture recognized by the City of Ottawa as an official heritage building, but it is also a gathering place for film enthusiasts  to enjoy screenings of unique films that won’t be played anywhere else in town!

Built in 1932 during the Great Depression, the Mayfair is a landmark of Bank Street and one of the only remaining independent movie theatres in all of Canada. The Mayfair screens a diverse selection of films—from eye-opening documentaries to old classics, and everything in between— offering a truly classic theatre experience!
