In these vintage aerial shots the Railto Theatre can be seen below and a little left of the B24 nose cone. Above the Rialto can be seen the Lyric Theatre. McDonald Douglas manufactured B24s in Tulsa.

Here is a facsimile image of the Rialto (nee-Orpheum) Theatre stage, before Boller Bros. modernization. Be sure to explore this great web site for color photo of historic stage backdrop scenery.

This ORPHEUM THEATER was built in 1907 by Keith/Albee Theaters to showcase Orpheum Circuit Vaudeville. In 1917 the West Third Street Orpheum was given a new look and new name (RIALTO) a few weeks before Keith/Albee opened their new Orphuem Theater on East Fourth Street.
After WWII Boller Brothers Architectural Firm created an attractive ‘40s Contemporary Moderne facelift for Rialto.
After operating for several years as a second run movie house the Railto Theater was razed in 1972.

This was Tulsa’s first ORPHEUM Theater, and was renamed RIALTO shortly before the new Orphuem opened in 1917 on Fourth Street.

A Robert-Morton organ was installed in this theater in 1926.
