A little of the interior of the Air Force base theater can be seen in this photo.

The first cinema to open at the then RAF Alconbury was the Astra Cinema, this closed, along with most of the base after WW2. In readiness for a new role, the airbase was significantly rebuilt, including a later Alconbury Theatre as it was last called. This was operated by the US Air Force for their own personnel and families on the base. In line with the gradual thinning down of personnel stationed overseas, RAF Alconbury has been largely sold off and the land built on with modern day shops and housing. The cinema has also been closed for a long time, and may well be demolished by now. It is noted on the USAF website as closed.
