B.F. Keith’s Theater was a typical small city vaudeville house with a very large stage house, pit, orchestra level, and two balconies, plus a mezzanine. It was opened prior to 1914.
The Disney movies always came to Keith’s Theatre, so it was a particular favorite of us kids. I remember that painted on the canal side of the building was the sign, “B.F. Keith’s, the house of perfect sound…VITAPHONE”.
When it closed in the 1960’s, it lay abondoned for years. After a brief stint as headquarters for a short-lived, semi-pro football team in Lowell, it suffered a major fire, was torn down, and paved over for parking. Its front office building survives.
