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.
