HISTORY

The Alexandra was built as a Corn Exchange in 1871 and, as can still be seen, it forms an contiguous part of the larger market hall building and boasts a fine Italianate tower over its entrance. The exterior and some original internal features are grade 2 listed.

It was operating as a cinema during the silent era but has also been much used for theatrical purposes and it was not until the balcony was separated off to form screen 2 that it changed its name from "Alexandra Theatre" to "Alexandra Cinema". Some major works were carried out during the 1930s, when presumably the balcony was added along with an altered entrance and new toilet blocks on each side. The front lobby still retains aspects of this with its domed ceiling and glass lighting trough over the main doors.

Little is known of its ownership in earlier years apart from the fact that a local gentleman by the name of Captain Oakey was the proprietor at some time pre World War 2. For many years it was operated by a local company who also had the Imperial Cinema in Queen Street and whose Directors were also major shareholders in 3 of the cinemas in Paignton and Torquay.

When this company decided not to renew its lease in the early 1960s it was acquired by the then manager, Mr C.C.W. Scott who continued to operate it along with other Devon cinemas up until the time of his death in 1986, ably assisted by house manager and secretary Mrs Violet Spooner.

This is a somewhat idiosyncratic building, not without charm, but also constrained by its limited size and layout, but it has always prospered by being right in the heart of this lovely market town.

 

CURRENT

The cinema has two screens, Screen 1 is located in the original stalls and Screen 2 in the original balcony.

During 2012, a full interior refurbishment was carried out. This included the complete refurbishment of the foyer and all front of house areas. Later, work in Screen 1 included a new suspended ceiling, and the replacement of the wall drapes.

Digital Projection and Sound was also added, with 3D capabilities in the large screen.

We visited this cinema whilst holidaying in Devon, tickets are much cheaper than the big 10 screen multiplex's that we have in the Midlands. The seats where comfy with plenty of leg room and it was a lovely cinema that took us back to the good old days

This is an old fashioned cinema. It has very comfortable chairs and plenty of leg room. Much cheaper than your better known chains. Excellent deals on snacks. Only a couple of screens but they change the films though out the day. Would visit again.

Well a disappointing family trip to the cinema. My son is nearly 3 and very excitable so did talk loudly saying 'cat' 'dog' 'wow' as he watched the film. He wanted milk and I fed him then took him to the toilet. Came back and he had lost his shoe so helping him find it when the attendant said we... 更多

We have taken the family to several Scott cinemas and this one is one of the best. Auditorium 1 is on a single level and very spacious. The place is clean and well stocked with confectionary . Coffee is ok. Prices are reasonable but why charge extra for on line booking ? This is typical of Scott cinemas and annoying.

Went to see Spectre last night and enjoyed the film, in spite of the poor quality of the projection. When the background was light behind the scenes, it definitely looked like it was snowing, which was rather off- putting! Suggest they check their projection equipment. Seating comfortable in screen 1 and could see easily( though I am nearly 6 foot-so... 更多
