Thanks Lost Memory. It looks like it could have been split into 6 or 7 screens

The Amir is featured in Theatre Catalog, 1952 Volume, in a section on new cinema theatres in Egypt. I have yet to visit Alexandria, but during my second trip to Egypt, in 2005, I made a point to view several of the old theatres in Downtown Cairo on Talaat Harb Street, which is a couple of blocks from the Egyptian Museum.
