According to Our Theatres To-day and Yesterday, a book by Ruth Crosby Dimmick published in 1913, the operator who took over the Savoy Theatre in 1911 and converted it into a movie house was Walter Rosenberg. A few years later, Rosenberg changed his surname to Reade, and he and his son, Walter Reade Jr., went on to build an extensive chain of movie theaters. Rosenberg/Reade was the nephew of Oscar Hammerstein I.

My great grandmother, Anna Schober Fields, appeared at the Savoy as Mrs. Schultz in “Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch” on September 4, 1904.

This ad seems to indicate the Savoy was being run by the same owners that had the New Amsterdam and Astor. Was it Cinema Circuit?
