Across the actual 90th anniversary weekend (Sat 3 March – Mon 5 March) The Savoy will celebrate with a mixture of cinema and live entertainment, local, national and international.
A recent family film favourite gets the fancy dress / sing-a-long treatment as the Savoy Youth Theatre present Frozen at 2pm on Saturday 3 & Sunday 4 March.
To mark the celebrations in style, two local amateur theatre companies will come together for one night only (Sat 3 March, 7:30pm) to present an evening of music and comedy. Monmouth Musical Theatre will deliver the music and Monmouth’s Off Centre Theatre will provide the humour with sketches.
Miles Jupp, presenter of the ever-popular BBC Radio 4 News Quiz, will be gathering a collection of his comedy chums to present a gala evening of good humour on Sunday 4 March (7:30pm).
To top off the celebrations, on Monday 5 March, there will be a screening of the very first film that opened the then New Picture House on Church Street, exactly 90 years to the day. A rare opportunity to see a classic of the Silent Comedy era on the big screen; the legendary Harold Lloyd, Hollywood star of the early twentieth century, takes the lead as ‘The Kid Brother’ (7:30pm).
