Cult Classics, Independent Fare and Foreign Films at Ottawa's Heritage Theatre
Billed as Ottawa's home of things you won't see anywhere else, the Mayfair is the city's oldest and longest running cinema. Situated at the crossroads of the Glebe and Old Ottawa South - and having been in operation since 1932 (!) - this heritage theatre is Ottawa's destination for award winning independent and foreign films, and the best place to catch a Molly Ringwald trilogy or Indiana Jones marathon.
Architecture junkies are also drawn to the Mayfair's rare and unusual architectural features that make it completely unique in Canada. Designed as an “atmospheric cinema”, the Mayfair is one of the few remaining examples of this theatre style, specifically designed to enhance each film and allow the viewers to feel completely involved and absorbed in the story.
The Mayfair embodies escapist pleasure at its finest, showing films the way they were meant to be seen.
