Located in the South Tel-Aviv district of Yafo (Jaffa), the Alhambra Cinema was opened in 1937, and was designed by Lebanese architect Elias Al-Mor.
After the establishment of the State of Israel and the imposition of military rule, the Alhambra Cinema was taken over by Israelis and was re-named Yafo Cinema. It continued to operate as a cinema until 1963.
The building was then converted into a live theatre, and the stage was extended at the rear. This use ceased many years ago and the building became derelict, with only the entrance in use as a bank until 2007.
It was purchased by the Church of Scientology in 2010, and after a two years perior of renovation, was opened in August 2012 as the Ideal Center of Scientology for the Middle East.
