The remodel of the Rialto Theatre to the Chief took place in 1938, It was remodeled again in 1949. Robret O. Boller was the architect for both remodels. The Rialto/Chief was owned by the Chief Investment Co. of Denver, CO.

A 1985 view of the Chief Theater in Pueblo open and showing movies here and here and a 1987 view here and here closed and for sale for $75,000. Sounds like a bargain. What great detail the the thunderbirds were in the small hexagon openings on each side of the “Chief” sign.
