Located in Cambuslang, an outer suburb, 7 miles south-east of Glasgow. The Savoy Cinema was opened in 1929 and was built for a local operator as a cinema with theatre facilities.

Designed in a Neo-Classical style by noted cinema architect John Fairweather, there are Classical style columns along the side-walls of the auditorium. The proscenium is 36 feet wide, the stage 12 feet deep and two dressing rooms were provided.

Closed as a cinema in the early-1960’s, it was re-named Vogue, becoming a bingo club. In recent years the original Savoy name has been re-instated.

In 2008 a planning application was submitted to convert the building into a pub, by the J.D. Wetherspoon chain, but this was abandoned, but resubmitted in 2013. In September 2008, the building was designated a Grade C(s) Listed building by Historic Scotland.

The 2008 pub plans were abandoned and the building put up for sale, but there were no takers. Wetherspoon’s have now changed their mind and decided to go ahead with the pub plan, and a fresh planning application was lodged in August 2013.
