The Cameo in downtown Pittsburgh opened as the Cameraphone (not to be confused with the Cameraphone in East Liberty) in 1908. It became the Savoy from 1918-22. On September 23, 1922, it changed identities for the final time to the Cameo. It was destroyed by fire July 4, 1927.

The Cameo was adjacent to the State Theatre, which survived three decades longer.

The theater may have has as few as 349 seats when it was the Cameraphone. If indeed it grew to 700 seats, one of the renovations may have included taking over an adjacent building.
