Savoy, Russell St. Kettering. Second only to the Granada for popularity with teenagers in the late 50's and through the 60's. Savoy seemed to show mainly cheap budget horror films which appealed to young people as the tv had little to offer in that vein. The manager at the time was Maurice Lee who installed a coffee bar and hot dog sales upstairs in the foyer. This was a big hit with teddy boys and their girlfriends as, if the film was non entertaining, they congregated there instead. Sadly missed by many when it closed. Did it catch on fire at some stage? And did that force its closure as a cinema? Anyone know?
