    cinematreasures.org/theaters/23 Boston Opera House 539 Washington Street, Boston, MA 02111 "The B.F. Keith Memorial Theatre was a vaudeville house in Boston’s theater district. It opened on October 29, 1928 with the film “Oh Kay” starring Colleen Moore. This beautiful house later became part of the RKO theater chain and the RKO Keith’s switched to a movies only format. Its name was later changed to the Savoy Theatre and was purchased by Sack Theatres. In 1978, the Savoy Theatre was sold by Sack to the Opera Company of Boston, and the theater became known as the Opera House, for which it was used until 1990. The theater was renovated, restored, and reopened in July 2004 by Clear Channel Entertainment, and is now a site for touring Broadway shows and other live entertainment, known as the Boston Opera House."
