The Savoy Theater — Movie lovers who grew up in central Vermont are almost certain to remember the Savoy Theater as the place where they discovered Spike Lee or Jim Jarmusch or Jane Campion. Established as an art-house cinema in 1981 (the theater itself dates back more than a century), Montpelier’s Savoy underwent major renovations in the past decade and acquired digital projection and a second screening room styled as a cozy lounge. Today, the companion video store is gone. But the Savoy is still the place in the area to catch the latest Jarmusch flick, up-and-coming indie, or homegrown Vermont film — accompanied by a craft beer (if you’re in the lounge) and organic popcorn with brewer’s yeast, of course.
