The Rialto Theatre opened May 29, 1918 with John Barrymore in “Raffles”. It originally featured a diagonal floor plan and seating arrangements, and a multi-colored, terra-cotta exterior.
For promotional use, the theatre has three large vertical billboard-type signs, one on the cut-off front corner of the building, and another on each side of the theatre’s center board. The Rialto Theatre was still open in 1929, but had closed by 1931.
After the Rialto Theatre closed, the building was used for many different retail store purposes. It was later demolished.
