Opened by their Majesties King George V and Queen Mary in March 1927, The May Fair Hotel was built in the former garden of Devonshire House, which belonged to the Duke of Devonshire since the 18th century.
The theatre was designed by George Beech in 1963 as part of the hotel. It opened with Pirandello's comedy Six Characters in Search of an Author and, since then, it has often welcomed musicians and artists as well hosting private Hollywood screenings and parties.
Always about style and entertaining, The May Fair Theatre is the largest private screening room in London with 201 seats. Its state of the art and high definition technology, as well as the fabulous Italian leather chairs designed by Ferrari, make of it all one of the best cinema experiences in London.
