The Scollay Square Olympia Theatre opened on November 17, 1913 as a vaudeville theatre. It was one of the places where Milton Berle and other vaudeville performers began their careers. Later, it switched to movies.
According to David Kruh’s book “Always Something Doing: A history of Boston’s Infamous Scollay Square”, the Scollay Square Olympia Theatre was Boston’s first building constructed with steel-reinforced concrete.
Almost all of Scollay Square, including all of its stage and movie theatres, was demolished in the early-1960’s to make way for Boston’s Government Center.
