Savoy Cinema Dublin

Hotel Beside The Savoy Cinema Dublin

The Savoy Cinema located right next door to the Hotel Riu Plaza The Gresham Dublin is the oldest operational cinema in Dublin, and is the preferred cinema in Ireland for film premières. The cinema was built in 1929 on the site of the old Granville Hotel. The luxurious auditorium, housing 2,789 seats, opened to the public with the American colour talkie On with the Show. It was altered in 1954 to incorporate a large CinemaScope screen, and showed Ireland's first widescreen feature, The Robe, at the time owned by Odeon Ireland Ltd.

The cinema has hosted the Irish premières of many films, most of them having an Irish connection. Films shown here have included Alexander, Once and The Man in the Iron Mask. The cinema is also used during the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, primarily for big-event screenings such as opening and closing night show.
