The Maffitt Theatre was built by Fanchon & Marco and later taken over by the Arthur Enterprises Inc. as was all the F & M Theatres. Located on the corner of Vandeventer Avenue and Maffitt Avenue, with the box office and entrance doors facing the corner of the street. The Maffitt Theatre opened in 1929 and seated 955.
A small lobby with the concession stand located in the middle of the west wall, with a nice terazzo floor in the lobby. There were three aisles that led into the theatre, two side aisles and one center. The Maffitt Theatre was a single floor theatre with no outstanding features inside the auditorium.
The theatre closed in 1956 and was gutted and became a National Food Store. The building was a local grocer for a while, but was demolished prior to 2007.
