We’re delighted to say we’ve completed our line-up for our Old Savoy Cinema Weekend over the Bank Holiday Weekend at the end of this month. And what a cracking line-up it is too, with something for everyone to enjoy: Grease, ET, The Greatest Showman, Mary Poppins, Back to the Future, Bridget Jones Diary, Jurassic Park, Goonies, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and Mamma Mia.

Yes, our theatre is going back to its roots for a special weekend journey down Memory Lane, remembering the days when The Savoy, then The ABC, and finally Canon, was a popular town centre cinema. It is now The Old Savoy, home of The Deco Theatre, once again a busy entertainment venue putting on live shows throughout the year. But we are very proud of the theatre’s history, and a Cinema Weekend was a great way of honouring its past.

We’re showing 10 films over the weekend of August 28th, 29th, 30th, and 31st, and we’d love you to come and join us – as a couple, as a family, with friends, whatever – and it goes without saying that your well-being will be paramount at all times; all groups coming to watch a film will be socially distanced from others.

  • Downstairs in the stalls there will be tables for groups of four or six, disabled seating too.
  • All tables will be placed in a two-metre square area.
  • If you chose to sit downstairs, you will be able to order a selection of food to your table, including a cheese and anti-pasta platters, or afternoon tea.
  • You can also order buckets of bottled beer, which can include, if you wish, wines and small bottles of spirits, along with cans of soft drinks.
  • If you choose to sit in the upstairs seating, there will be two seats kept free either side of your group, as will three seats in front, and three behind each individual

You can also stop by before the film at our newly opened Golden Globe café, serving hot and cold drinks, and a selection of snacks, including pizzas, hotdogs, candy floss, popcorn and more. Again, we have organised this to respect social distancing, and all orders will be taken via our table service.

We will also be selling tubs of ice cream, and calypsos, during the interval.

So a great weekend of film entertainment planned, a perfect afternoon or evening out for the family, a lovely, nostalgic, trip down Memory Lane for many, and to book your tickets, which go on sale from Friday, August 7, simply go online:

Thank you for your understanding with this.
