Cook Brothers Construction Canterbury have recently marked the turning of the sod for the rebuild of the much-loved community Mayfair Theatre in Kaikōura. The Mayfair suffered large damages in the wake of the November 2016 earthquakes and as a result, has been closed for business ever since. However, big plans for the cinema's future has begun with construction planned to begin in the coming weeks to revive the Theatre.
Luckily, the magnificent Art Deco facade largely survived the Quakes with minor damage. This iconic facade will remain on the building with a new multi-purpose facility constructed behind.
Our Canterbury team are getting underway on this iconic project. We are looking forward to seeing this theatre come back to life as a new vibrant Arts and Culture Centre for the community of Kaikōura. Exciting times ahead for our team and the community.
