      Dayton Grandmaison was the former proprietor of Dayton's Restaurant in Van Buren, Maine. The restaurant resided in a theater first constructed in 1920, named the Star Theatre. It was regarded as one of finest theaters north of Bangor, and showed both live performances and films until the auditorium was destroyed by fire in 1924. After being renovated it was renamed the Gayety Theatre, and operated until 1983, whereafter it was further renovated to become Dayton's Restaurant.
