Rialto being converted to a mixed-use venue
EL DORADO, AR — The Rialto Theater is being converted in three phases into a venue for a variety of entertainment. Although the capability to show films (digitally) will eventually be part of the mix, the theater will also feature live performances. Opened in 1929, the theater was later converted to a triplex.
Phase one of a three-phase program to renovate the Rialto Theater in downtown El Dorado is complete, according to a news release issued Tuesday by Corinne Management, LLC, which operates the facility.
The theater closed two years ago after being in operation for almost 90 years, and a three-stage plan has been put together to bring the venue back to life, the release said.
