Located in Lochee, a suburb to the south-west of Dundee. The Rialto Cinema opened in 1928. It had a Mexican style exterior with an Atmospheric style interior with a Chinese theme. The front of the projection box was designed as a Chinese shaped face, with the two projection port-holes as the eyes. The Rialto Cinema was closed in 1962, and was converted into a bingo club. On 12th March 1993, Historic Scotland designated the Rialto Cinema a Grade B Listed building.
The bingo club had closed by March 2007 when the vacant building was damaged by a fire. The Rialto Cinema was demolished in November 2014 for flats to be built on the site.
