Cobham, to the south-east of Esher is today on the outer boundry of Greater London. The Savoy Cinema was located on Portsmouth Road, opposite Northfield Road. It opened in 1937. It had a 45 feet wide proscenium, a stage where occasional live shows were performed, and a cafe was another of its facilities. The Savoy Cinema was taken over by the Shipman & King chain in 1938.

Shipman & King were taken over by the Grade Organisation in 1967, and around 1970, the Savoy Cinema was closed. It has since been demolished and the site is now a playing field.

I remember going to this cinema as a child and seeing Mary Poppins, in fact as we were leaving my sister informed me that they would be showing it again after we had left and I cried my eyes out as I wanted to be able to watch it one more time!
