With ios 8 airplay will function without wifi.
iOS 8 will introduce peer to peer networking protocol to airplay.

Not true I can have a local network with wifi and not have Internet access.

To the OP: the ATV doesn't need an internet connection for airplay.

If the material being played is something you added to your iTunes, yes... If it's iTunes purchased, it won't play...at least that is my experience.

You will be able to mirror screen as well as airplay any content from your iDevice as long as desired file is locally available on your device. (Is stores in your device's memory, rather than eg. In the cloud)

Not quite. Content purchased via the iTunes Store has to authenticate to play via Home Sharing and/or AirPlay... The only way I can play purchased content without an Internet connection is to use my TV as a second monitor to the computer...hard wired.
