Finally found a photo of the auditorium – taken around the time of opening in 1927. Decorated in an atmospheric style of a classical garden with hunting scenes too. All that artwork was painted over at some point and a more ‘modern’ scheme was just flat painted walls etc – such a shame! Sadly,I never got to see it in its original glory.

New photo added of the Alexandra Music Hall & Palace that sttid on the site before the more modern Alexandra Cinema replaced it. I’m searching for some shots of the auditorium and will post if I find any.

Photo added of the ‘Alex’ after take over by Star Cinemas who promptly put it on bingo. Painted the foyer & auditorium orange for some strange reason!

The map reference is complete wrong. The Alexandra was situated at the town centre end of Alexandra Rd opposite Warburg Barracks which were replaced by the multi story carpark, which its self has now been demolished for the new Westgate Centre development where the new Cineworld cinema is located. Does anyone have any photos of the Alexandra? Mike Blakemore perhaps?

The Alexandra Cinema closed on 25th March 1967 and became a Star Bingo Club for many years. It was demolished in 1986.
