Mayfair Theatre (former),167-173 Collins St,Melbourne

Until 1982, The Mayfair cinema on Collins st was one of my all time fave grindhouse cinemas. Saturday nights they ran hardcore kung fu movies from 9.30 onwards. Shows were always packed. Never seen so many throwing stars in my life!

I saw some of the best horors at this great little venue.. Always had great independant movies, second only to the Valhalla.

I remember bunking off school and taking my friends to see PIRANHA. I remember they showed boobs within the first 5 minutes and we thought the movie couldn’t possibly get any better. (and it didnt!).
