This theater was originally opened and operated by Commonwealth and then United Artists before being sold to a local owner in the early 90s. Later in the mid to late 90s the theater was again sold to Carmike who operated it until their bankruptcy in the 2000s. After this the theater sat empty before being used a church and then later a second run discount house.

The owners (Movie Palaces) of a new Theater (Studio City® Mesa + ARQ® (West)) here in Casper, WY that opened on March 27, 2015 included one auditorium named after this theater. IT was built to emulate the Denver Cooper (it even features a glass showcase with memorabilia from the Denver Cooper). It features a large curved screen that is 65ft wide X 30ft tall. It also has large oversized leather seats. Tickets are reserved, rather than on a first-come-first served basis. This auditorium also features sound from Meyer Sound. The Movie Palaces has trademarked the technology in this auditorium as ARQ (Arc).

Not sure how it compares to the Denver Cooper, as I never watched a movie there.

Theater was originally was owned by Commonwealth. Commonwealth was later bought out by United Artists. Later along with the Cole Square 3 this theater was bought by current owner Carmike. Unlike the Carmike theaters in Casper and Rock Springs this location survived the chopping block when the company was in chapter 11 bankruptcy early in this decade.

MichaelGraham commented about Rialto Theatre on Sep 11, 2006 at 5:27 pm

Can’t tell you much about the history of this theater located at 2nd and Center other than the fact that Commonwealth Theaters leased the theater in 80s. In the late 80s it was sold and then remodeled. I remember standing in line several times to watch a double feature for just $1.50. Also remember, as many did waiting to see movies there for a cheap price, as they had play at the theater in Eastridge Mall or Beverly Plaza before moving to the America or Rialto downtown. The first of many double futures watched was BIG and something with John Candy I think. Last year the theater was remodeled once again. The movie screen size was reduced during this remodel.
