Is there a way to import .key files from Keynote into OpenOffice in Ubuntu?

I know you can open them as zip files, but can't I open them as PDF or something similar?

Unfortunately this is not possible. If you have access to Keynote then you can export as .ppt and then import this file into OpenOffice Impress.
