Independent cinema, independent style

This is a great cinema, especially for students. The prices are sensible, the seating isn't bad, and the screens are ok. Some of it could be better, but for the price and the atmosphere I wouldn't replace anything. The large room at the top is the best, and is generally where they screened the most popular feature. I always enjoyed sitting in one of the big seats with a friend - almost as though you were at home. I've also always found the staff to be friendly - but then some of them were people I knew....Report this

Upon arrival to the savoy cinema, I did not know what to expect. The reception area is small and people often end up queuing outside the cinema to get in. When I walked in to the screen, I could not believe how small it was. I could have just watched the film on dvd at home. However, the smallness of this cinema does add a uniqueness to it that you probably wont find elsewhere. Seating space is limited but just comfortable enough. Snacks and drinks are limited as there is never much on sale. If you live in Lenton, it is worth experiencing this cinema as it will leave you with lasting memories!Report this
worst cinema ever been to
12/09/2008 by toomuchcash
This place is about 5 mins walk away from my flat so it was a really great thing to see a cinema so close. They do not get many hit films as cinemas have to pay for a license to show each film. When we first went there the inside looks like 40 years old and very dated. They have a small selection of sweets and unpleasant staff. Inside the screens are the smallest i have ever seen and the rooms can fit around 100 people. The chairs are also the most uncomfortable i have ever sat on. They also show some independent films which is good but cinema lets it down.Report this

This small cinema is great...it is not part of a chain and has some old features which add to the character and charm of the Savoy! It is fairly cheap to see films but the selection isn't like the main stream cinemas but needless to say is worth a visit. As other reviews have mentioned there isn't a great amount of leg room and the choice of snacks is limited but is worth a visit - especially if you have never been and have lived in Nottingham.Report this
The Savoy Cinema
27/08/2008 by abyznw
This is a great little cinema situated in Lenton - the student town of Nottingham. It only has 4 screens, and one is small enough to practically be a tv, but the place has oodles of charm. The staff are always friendly and the old-fashioned decor just adds to the experience. The great thing about the Savoy is that it is independently run, but they still charge a lot less than the chain cinemas. The downside to The Savoy is the lack of sweets and snacks that they have on offer, a bag of Revels or popcorn is about all you will get, unlike in larger cinemas where you are spoilt for choice. The Savoy shows all the latest releases but also has special nights where it shows classics like 'Rocky' and 'Top Gun'.Report this
My Favourite Cinema
21/08/2008 by sarahjane87
Without a doubt this is probably the best cinema I've ever visited. Within a few minutes walk from the majority of the student area of Lenton, it doesn't look much on the outside but has an atmosphere all of its own once you enter. It's old-fashioned which gives it a certain charm - big, comfortable seats and curtains across the screen make watching a film a little more fun. The cinema does only have four screens ranging from your normal cinema size to one with only about 30 seats, but again this is part of its charm. The prices are the cheapest I've ever experienced, only £3.50 for a student (factor Orange Wednesdays into this, and you'll see why it's so populat) - their drinks and food are also incredibly reasonably priced. There are often very long queues, particularly when they screen a film straight from its release date, but tickets can be booked online and as long as you get there early you rarely have a problem. I say when they screen a film straight from its release date because, being an independent cinema, there is often a delay between the mainstream release and its release here, but that's not always the end of the world. One final note - there isn't a lot of leg room for those who are quite tall (I'm 5"8 and struggle through longer films) but that's not unique to this cinema. I definitely miss the Savoy, a lot!Report this
