Now a large development with a Pavilions and a Staples. You can see on Google Maps where the screen was – at the bottom right corner of the lot.

It must’ve been just a couple of doors down from the Loma. Both are now gone, swallowed up by tacky condos.

MagicLantern commented about Rio Theater on Jun 17, 2010 at 4:02 pm

It’s a church, but it doesn’t look as if they’ve inhabited the shell of the theatre. It just looks like a regular church – possibly the Rio has been demolished and the church rose up in its place.
