The Arcade Music Hall was built inside a covered shopping arcade, constructed in 1882 and designed by architect John McLean. The theatre was upstairs on the first floor. It was built for William Crawford, a china merchant and had other buildings within the complex including a hotel.

Later re-named Alhambra Theatre when it went over to cine/variety use in 1912 and then from 1930 became it became a full time cinema using BTH sound equipment. It went back to live varity theatre use and was closed in 1939 (possibly due to the outbreak of World War II).

The theatre was partially converted into retail use, but fragments of decoration survive behind panels etc. The theatre part of the building is currently un-used.

On 28th October 1976, Historic Scotland designated the Alhambra a Grade B Listed building.
