The History of Citizen’s Bank Opera House
Opened in 1928, under the name of the B.F. Keith Memorial Theatre, this venue was originally designed as one of the premier movie houses of its day. It soon changed names to the RKO Keith’s Memorial after the formation of the Radio-Keith-Orpheum company (yes, the same Keith). The theater changed hands in 1965, becoming known as the Savoy Theater, and would remain open as a movie house until 1980. Then, it was converted into a live performance space, becoming the home of the Opera Company of Boston. Financial problems saw the space closed in 1991 and languishing for years until a renovation project in 2004 brought it back to its current glory.
