Located in the North Humberside town of Kingston upon Hull, in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The Alexandra Theatre was on the corner of George Street and Bourne Street. It opened on 26th December 1902 with a production of the play “A Royal Divorce”. Designed in a Renaissance style by architect William Guest, a feature of its exterior was a large tower on the Bourne Street corner. Inside the auditorium seating was provided in orchestra stalls, pit stalls, dress circle, balcony and gallery levels. The proscenium was 36 feet wide.

By the early-1930’s it was presenting variety shows.

The Alexandra Theatre was destroyed by German bombs in 1941. Housing has since been built on the site.
