| Street View

The 350-seat (as of 1945, according to that year’s Film Daily Yearbook) was located on Ruby Street near Hickory Street. It was opened in 1940, and was closed in 1951. Stores were built on the site.

Any additional information on the Rio Theatre would be appreciated.

At the time this theater closed/burned in the late 50s or so, wasn’t it known as the “LEE THEATER”? I seem to recall this from my tender years:))
