Opened on 11th May 1932 and the architects were Albert Walter Moore and Crabtree (of the architectural firm Moore & Crabtree). Similar to the Savoy Cinema in Limerick it has an Art Deco style exterior and an Atmospheric style interior. The cinema had a large restaurant and the auditorium was equipped with a Compton 3Manual/12Ranks theatre organ. The Savoy Cinema was closed on 1st February 1975 with “The Towering Inferno”.

It now houses the Savoy Shopping Centre and the Cork Dance Studio.

Following the link above by lostmemory, it seems the upper parts of this former cinema is used mainly as a dance hall, with shops at ground level. When first opened the Savoy was equipped with a Compton theatre organ.

The lovely Compton organ was removed and is now installed at The University of Limerick, Ireland

The Savoy closed on 1 February 1975 with the Towering Inferno, with guests from the cast of Upstairs Downstairs in attendance for some reason.
