Located in the basement of the Heritage listed Savoy Hotel, which was built in 1912. The space was originally a billiard hall, and was converted into the Savoy Theatrette in 1956. It operated as a newsreel theatre, also screening short subjects and cartoons, in one hour long programmes.

Due to the arrival of television, the Savoy Theatrette went over to screening full length feature films from mid-1959. In 1975, the programming policy changed to R-Rated adult films.
