Alexandra c.1934

The 400-seat Alexandra Theatre was opened in 1906, presenting live shows on its stage. After the Cinematograph Act came into force in 1910, it began screening films from 21st February 1910 and was operated by the Fareham Electric Theatre Syndicate. Variety acts also formed part of the programme.

It was closed around 1928 and was reconstructed, re-opening in September 1928. Seating was now provided for 650. It was equipped with a Western Electric(WE) sound system.

The Alexandra Cinema was closed in 1934 when the nearby Savoy Cinema opened. In 1937, the Alexandra Cinema was demolished, and the Embassy Cinema was built on the site by the Shipman & King circuit.
