The Savoy Theater opened around 1908. It was remodeled around 1940 by architect William H. Lee, and at that time it was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp. The Savoy Theater closed in 1948. About two years later the theater was converted to a store. It has since been demolished

This can be made Closed/Demolished—the north side of the 1200 block of Market Street was cleared by the early ‘90s to make way for a Marriott hotel as part of the Convention Center project.
