Open since at least 8/14/1926 when a Wurlitzer organ (opus 1418) was installed. This theatre is still listed as operating in the 1951 Film Daily Yearbook.

Any additional information on this theatre would be greatly appreciated.

Here’s an ad for the Rialto from the Jersey Journal, December 1942. If anyone tried to make a movie like that in 1952 instead of 1942, they’d be hanged for high treason:

Looks to be demolished. From the Google aerial photos I see a gas station at that address.
