May Fair Theatre

Interior of May Fair Theatre at The May Fair Hotel London

Under the ownership of Hollywood’s Danziger brothers during the fifties and sixties, the hotel became a real theatrical showpiece. A private cinema and theatre were built, alongside a pool bar housing real caiman crocodiles. 

The crocodiles may no longer grace the halls of The May Fair Hotel, but the stunning May Fair Theatre remains. One of the largest private screening rooms in London, May Fair Theatre is the perfect space for film premieres, presentations, live streamed events or product launches.
