Name-Plate Fundraiser Update!!

Our patrons were incredible during the lockdown that we found ourselves in from March – July.
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. So, we had some ideas to name off some other stuff…and that went really well too!

Now we’re in another round of a lockdown that will hopefully be over in early November. And, once again, people are being kind enough to ask about getting their name onto something in the cinema.

If you are a Mayfair fan, but are understandably doing your best to save money at the moment, please don’t fret too much about us. Just look forward to visiting the cinema to watch a movie and some some popcorn and candy and a beverage when we are through this.

If you would like to make a donation to immortalize your name on something in the cinema, and missed out on seats, please check out other options below.

Requests can be made to [email protected], and donations can be E-transferred to [email protected] as well.

Please remember that e-transfers cannot be replied to.

So, don’t forget to include your return email address, if you haven’t already contacted [email protected]
