Built as the Corn Exchange in 1871, it was converted into the Alexandra Theatre in around 1900. The proscenium was 26 feet wide, the stage 18 feet deep and there were three dressing rooms.
Early film shows were also held in the building. In 1927 a balcony was added and it became a full time cinema, seating was provided for 550.
Taken over by Charles Scott in 1960, it was twinned in May 1996 with 200 seats in the former stalls and 125 in the former circle. In 2003, newer seats were installed and the seating is now for 190 and 97.
