Savoy 1 theatre from 1969 – 1979 was a magnificent place to see a movie – that’s where I saw the original STAR WARS in 1977.

The largest cinema here was host to a heated special meeting of the Bank of Ireland last Friday, with overflow accomodation used to seat the generally disaffected shareholders. This might be a relatively profitable new line of business for large cinemas, but the RTE TV 6p.m and 9p.m. news carried extensive film coverage showing the meeting, and by default the cinema interior. This news coverage should still be available, for a time, on the RTE news website.

The Savoy opened on 29th November 1929. The Venetian Atmospheric style auditorium was designed by interior designer W.E. Greenwood.
