Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Riviera stood on 18th Street, at First Avenue. Like a number of Rock Island’s movie houses, it is long gone, having closed around the mid-50s. It was still open in 1945, according to the Film Daily Yearbook from that year and had seating for 650. Any additional infomation on the Riviera would be appreciated.

Attended this theater in the early 1950’s. Would take the bus from 12th Street in Rock Island on Saturday mornings to watch a double feature cowboy movie with serial in between. Many found memories.
