The Savoia Theatre survived for 28 years yet no one can share anything about it? No comments at all? Unbelivable!

I was only 7 when it closed, but I do know that on weekends they showed Italian double features because at the time it was a predominantly Italian neighborhood. After it closed it became a social security office then a office supply store in the early 80’s Funny I had a dream about this theater the other night. If I remember correctly the name Savoia hung above the marquee vertical and curved.
