Marquee Rental!

Put a message up on our marquee for $150 + HST!

Seeing as we are returned from lockdown, we need to make use of the marquee to let people know what movies we are screening.
If you are interested in a marquee message, we may be able to fit it in for a few hours in the morning / early afternoon.

There are three lines, each line fits approximately 23 letter tiles (taking into account that space between words is about a letter tile width as well).


Posters for Sale!

A silver lining of being in lockdown is that we were able to get a lot of cleaning up done around the cinema. A giant chore taken care of was alphabetizing and logging our poster archives. Now that that task is out of the way, we’ve unearthed hundreds of posters that we are not in need of. There’s a mix of doubles, movies that won’t screen again, and posters for festivals. There’s also a batch of mini-posters and lobby cards that have specific times and dates on them, and hence can’t really be used again.

You’ll find a bunch of these posters on display in the cinema, to the left of the top of the stairs when facing the screen.

Once we sell off some of these posters, we might have room to put some other titles up for sale.

Regular movie posters and mini-posters are $10 – $20, festival posters and lobby cards are $20.
Movie posters are approximately 27 x 40, mini-posters 11 x 18, and lobby cards 8 x 10 (though there are variations bigger and smaller).

Mayfair Posters – For sale: December 2023 Update!


Vintage Marquee Tiles for Sale!

Place this information under the category of part garage sale, part fundraiser, part collector’s item.
During lockdown cleaning, we stumbled on some vintage marquee tiles. Not positive when they are from, but they must have been made use of before our current marquee was put in place. They don’t fit on our marquee, so we thought there might be some patrons who would like a cinematic souvenir from the Mayfair to put on display.

$20 a piece for the handful of letter tiles we have, and $40 a piece for the ratings tiles.

Updated list of what we have on hand:

Letters tiles – 1 x 4, 1 x %, 1 x E
Ratings tiles – 8 x “G”, 14 x “PG”, 10 x “R”, 8 x “PG-13”



35mm Trailer Sale!

Each trailer is $20 a piece.

Payment can be e-transferred to the same email address.

The list of titles available will be updated every once and a while, as they start getting picked through.

By popular demand, here is an updated list of available 35mm Trailers!

Name-Plate Fundraiser Update!

Our patrons were incredible during the various lockdowns that we found ourselves in recently.
What started as an idea to mark off a few seats as a bit of a fundraiser, quickly found all the seats in the cinema snatched up.

People continue to ask about supporting us via getting their name on seats (which are all sold out).
So, we had some ideas to name off some other stuff…and, that has been going really well too!

If you would like to make a donation to immortalize your name on something in the cinema, please check out a few remaining options below.


Add-a-Name Plaque (multiple spaces available) – $150 each

Poster Box 19 – Gentlemen’s Washroom – $250

Couch 1 – Lower House Left – $450

Thanks again, the constant encouragement from all of our patrons never ceases to amaze.
