Electric fans and lights were installed at the hall. Besides variety shows, a short film "Cheeky Traveller" was also shown at the theatre. According to its advertisements: new songs nightly, and new pictures every second night.

The cinema renamed as the Alexandra Cinematograph in early-1909. Its advertisements boasted the cinema to be the cosiest and most central hall.The cinema claimed entire change of programme every Monday and Thursday. These films have never been shown in Hong Kong by any other Cinematograph.

The cinema closed in the second half of
