The Savoy Cinema opened on 19th December 1935 with the film “Brewster’s Millions”. Designed by Leslie C. Norton, the cinema was Art Deco on the outside, and not overly fancy. The Savoy Cinema featured both live stage shows as well as movies in its earlier years, and contained a Compton 3Manual/6Ranks organ. The interior was Moorish/Atmospheric in style and the proscenium was 42ft wide. It was equipped with a Compton 3Manual/6Ranks theatre organ. There was also a restaurant attached to the cinema.
The Savoy Cinema was closed by Irish Cinemas in 1974, and used infrequently afterward for live shows and movies for several years. The Savoy Cinema was demolished in 1988-89 and replaced by an apartment building with a six screen multiplex cinema that retained the Savoy name. This too has since closed and was demolished in 2005.
