Although it was understood that Conor McGregor: Notorious was to be the last major premiere to be held in Savoy's Screen 1, it now looks like there's still some hope left for one of Dublin's most famous cinemas.

Speaking to us just moments ago, a representative from IMC Cinema Group confirmed that The Last Jedi will be shown in Savoy's Screen 1 from release up until "early January." A post from the cinema chain's official Facebook page also stated that tickets purchased for the screening in Screen 6 will be transferred to Screen 1.

Petitions have been launched to stop Screen 1's closure, however IMC Cinema Group is moving forward with their plans to split the room into two cinemas.
