I was speaking to staff at the Savoy cinema [O’onnell Street, Dublin 1] yesterday and was shocked to hear some of them are being made redundant, in favour of turnstiles and ticket scanners. First the Screen cinema goes under, now the Savoy appears to be floundering in this era of economic recovery. This turn of events comes completely out of the blue as the staff from the Screen were relocated to the Savoy barely three months previous. They seems amazed at the suggestion the cinema is over staffed.
