The largest theater in the small town (about 20,000 population) of Denison, it was the first run movie palace in the city from the time it was built in 1920 until it closed in August of 1977. It was built by L.M. Rideouton but was sold to the Interstate Theaters chain in 1935. Interstate operated the theater through the 1960s, but by the time it closed, it was locally owned.
It had a revival in the early 1980s, again showing first run films, but the local owner could not compete with the multi-theater located in a nearby shopping mall. Sometime in the 1990s, the Rialto was turned into a concert setting and is still open today — balcony and all — and weekly live country music shows are staged there.
