The Boston Theatre opened in 1908, near the corner of W. Madison Street and N. Clark Street, and was one of three early Loop movie houses owned by Harry C. Moir, who was also the owner of the Morrison Hotel, which the Boston Theatre was located near to. The theatre was also located kitty-corner to the large Boston Store, which could explain the theatre’s name. It sat around 750, and was located adjacent to the Columbia Burlesque Theatre on W. Madison Street.
In 1925, the Boston Theatre, Rose Theatre and Alcazar Theatre were among several properties demolished to make way for another expansion of the already large Morrison Hotel (with 2,500 rooms by the late-1920’s!)
