Amir Cinema

One of the downtown cinemas of Alexandria. The Amir Cinema opened in April 1952 with Bette Davis in “All About Eve” and was owned and operated by 20th Century Fox. It had a seating capacity of 1,204 (614 Stalls & 590 Balcony). A cafeteria was provided for the convenience of patrons.

Now divided into six screens, it is a venue that is used in the International Film Festival which is held annually in September. The main programming is current Hollywood products.

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.
