Situated right in the centre of Dublin on O’Connell Street, the Savoy justifies its place in the city’s cultural history. First opened to the public in 1929, technological modernisation has not diminished the grandeur of the interior, from the marble tiling in the lobby to the grand main screen, framed by red velvet curtains. The city’s oldest cinema still in operation, it frequently plays host to Irish premieres of both major and festival pictures, and its comfort, cosiness and legacy mean the Savoy continues to hold a special place in the hearts of locals. Before the prevalence of the large suburban multiplexes, the Savoy was many a Dubliner’s first cinema experience.
