Helped rejuvinate downtown development in Westfield, NJ. Town was awarded the 2004 Great American Main Street Award. The Rialto Theatre was opened September 1, 1922 with Richard Barthelmess in “Sonny” and Buster Keaton in “Cops”. Two more screens added on May 26, 1978. A further three screens were added in 1997 after it was purchased from United Artists.

Since AMC just purchased Carmike (this is currently a Carmike Theatre) I can see this place closing once AMC assumes control.
