"Filmmaking is a chance to live many lifetimes." 
― Robert Altman 


We love hypotheticals. From childhood make-believe to the three people you'd invite to dinner, we love thinking what-if, what could have been, what will be. Our latest offering, One Night in Miami takes us on a what-if wild ride set on a sultry 1964 evening when Cassius Clay, Malcolm X, football star Jim Brown, and singer Sam Cooke all come together to celebrate Clay winning the Heavyweight Championship. The American civil rights movement is in full swing, and each man is at the zenith of his power while going through monumental personal change—Clay's very public conversion to Islam (assisted by X, who fears his own life is already on a knife edge); Brown breaking through Hollywood color barriers; and Cooke playing music in white spaces, but feeling the pull to do more for the violent reality of many Black Americans. Written by Kemp Powers (based on his play) and directed by Regina King, the film takes all the wonder of the stage—the intimacy and candor of the cast's discussions/arguments—and pairs them with the grandness that only film can offer when capturing a Cash fight night or Cooke performance. Vibrant, inventive, and topical, a much-needed watch during these evolving times.  


We will be also continue playing the popular lineup of the award-winning Wolfwalkers, as well as Wonder Woman 1984. The hottest ticket, we have sold out quite a few showings of Wolfwalkers, and will definitely be keeping this sumptuous folk tale from Ireland's Cartoon Saloon for the foreseeable future. 


January 9th will be the 40th Anniversary of the Savoy Theater.  

A movie theater as early as 1905, the latest iteration of the theater was established by Rick Winston and Andrea Serota in 1981. 

Join Rick this morning from 9:30-10:00 on WDEV 96.5 FM, 96.1 FM, and 550 AM, as he discusses his time with the Savoy and the future of film.  


Our new hours are Saturday afternoons through Tuesday evenings. Check our website for updated schedules, upcoming films, and our hand-picked streaming selections: 


Even though cases are decreasing, masks are still required for all, and our employees will be wearing gloves and meticulously cleaning. We also have hand sanitizer stationed throughout the theater, ventilation running, staggered seating, and seat-side concession delivery to cut down on lobby traffic.     


If interested in showing support while also having a memorable and immersive experience, contact us about renting out either theater for your next party or film study. Rates are flexible:    





R- 1 hr. 54 mins.


On the night of Feb. 25, 1964, in Miami, Cassius Clay joins Jim Brown, Sam Cooke and Malcom X, and they discuss the responsibility of being successful black men during the civil rights movement.



PG - 1h. 43 min.


A young apprentice hunter and her father journey to Ireland to help wipe out the last wolf pack. But everything changes when she befriends a free-spirited girl from a mysterious tribe rumored to transform into wolves by night.



PG-13 - 2 hrs. 35 mins.


Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) lives quietly among mortals in the vibrant, sleek 1980s—an era of excess driven by the pursuit of having it all. Though she's come into her full powers, she maintains a low profile by curating ancient artifacts, and only performing heroic acts incognito. But soon, Diana will have to muster all of her strength, wisdom and courage as she squares off against Maxwell Lord and Cheetah.
