This theatre is not demolished. It currently operates as the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church; it was the Mayfair from the 1930s through at least the 1950s. It’s also the theatre furthest south of all the houses along Broadway.

I attended the Mayfair in the late 40’s and very early 50’s. It was second only to the Manchester in elegance at that time. Located at the south end of the Broadway shopping district.

Most famous (to me, at least) as the location where Aretha Franklin recorded her “Amazing Grace” album and documentary film.
