The building was originally built in 1885 per the Box Office article about the 1974 remodel linked below. So a theatre may not have been the original tenant, unless it was for stage plays or a hall of some kind.

It was renamed the Savoy Theatre by 1942.

From 1950 a view of the Savoy Theatre as it had looked since 1930 and from the same year a post restoration view of the Savoy in Grand Rapids.
