I remember this small cinema from when I first started working in Sydney in 1970. I was always curious that it was located at the top end of the city when most of the other theatres were in mid-town or down towards Railway Square (Bligh Street was in the banking and financial house district … I used to bank at the ES&A Bank directly opposite the Savoy, now also long gone). Costa-Gavras’s Greek political thriller ‘Z’ played there seemingly forever, late 1969, all through 1970 & beyond.

Dame Doris Fitton used the Savoy for smaller scale plays in her Independent Theatre before moving to North Sydney. The Sydney Morning Herald reported the Savoy was equipped for talkies using locally produced sound systems.
