The remains of the building were finally demolished in April 2007

still standing but only just – great bites taken out of the Eastern side! Sept.2006 For some very good pictures of the interior – Safari-time – go to the Local Studies at Croydon Library filed under “London Road” plus huge queues for the opening night.

From what I have been told only the adjacent shop units have been demolished. The cinema building still remains in April 2006, awating its final ‘death’.

The former Savoy Cinema is being demolished late March/early April 2005. The site is earmarked for residential use.

I think it may have lost. Closed and rumoured to be awaiting demolition as we go into 2004.
