UPDATE: We will be showing The King’s Speech on April 3, 6 & 7. Unfortunately, The Mayfair’s scheduled screenings of The King’s Speech (March 11-14 & 17) have been cancelled. Why? In early February, we booked The King’s Speech from distributor Alliance Atlantis.

Stephen King’s 1986 directorial debut MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE comes to the Mayfair in a great and rare 35mm presentation, on Friday March 18 at midnight. We got a very cool poster designed for us courtesy of a website called skuzzles.com They’re posters in the same design as the ones
