I think the final paragraph in the main description about being on the Buildings at Risk register needs amending.

Good news – after the bingo company moved out, The Alhambra has been purchased by developers who hope to restore and re-open the building as a live theatre by the end of 2008. The project is being overseen by a former director of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. There is going to be an open day on December 1st 2007. Further news on the theatre’s new website here:

The Alhambra Theatre opened on 22nd August 1922. It was built as a theatre with full stage facilites, but had provision to show films as well.

In 1931 a new crush hall was added to serve the seperate entrance to the pit and stalls. It had a seating capacity of 1,700.

It closed as a cinema in the mid-1960’s and become a bingo club.

Looks like the Alhambra’s days could be numbered as carlton have commenced work of a 2000 seat purpose-built leisure club in Dunfermline. Hope the locals press the council to do something to retain the Alhambra as a theatre/cinema venue or something in that vein.
