Built by Fareham & District Entertainments Ltd., who also operated the Alexandra Cinema just a few doors along West Street. The Savoy Cinema was opened in 1934, and the Alexandra Cinema was closed. The Savoy Cinema had a 40 feet wide proscenium, a stage and dressing rooms. It was equipped with Western Electric sound system. The Savoy Cinema also boasted a cafe for the convenience of its patrons.

It was taken over by the Shipman & King circuit, who soon built the Embassy Cinema on the site of the former Alexandra Cinema.

Shipman & King closed the Savoy Cinema in the late-1950’s. It was demolished and Woolworth’s expanded their store onto the site.

Today the site has been swallowed up by the Fareham Precinct shopping centre.
