News About This Theater
The first Rialto Theatre opened in April 1916 as the Piedmont Theatre. Designed by architect A. Ten Eyck Brown, it seated 925 and was located at 84 Forsyth Street.
In 1962, Martin razed the old Rialto Theater and built this bigger one with a seating capacity 1,200. It opened July 12, 1963 with Janet Leigh in “Bye Bye Birdie”. Georgia State University acquired the property in 1991 and did a fantastic job of converting it into one of Atlanta’s premiere concert venues.
