I’m all for progress, but look! They’ve completely removed the “SAVOY” name. That I find quite sad. Maybe someone could have at least kept the name up there??? Btw: The new exterior looks bloody awful…

This particular cinema holds a lot of fond memories. It was the first cinema we used to travel to when “she who must be obeyed” and I got our first banger (old, second-hand car). We would often see two or three films in a row and wait in the car or go to the Chinese restaurant across the way. We had to travel a fair distance too, and not realising that it had gone for good, we set of one early morning, and it had locked its doors for good and was ready, if unwilling, for the next faze. Total demolition. We were shocked and gutted…sad.

Hello there Keith…

This is what you need to explain it all, while over my head with the technologies here, I’d recommend getting in touch with them and getting this very good book on its grand history and backgrounds… It will tell you what you need to know and more…plus, if you have not yet been there then you MUST go, it’s just…words fail me, that’s how charming, rustic, charismatic and historical it feels.
