Rialto Theatre was part of Hall Industries. It usually ran 2nd run movies. It closed down in early 60’s and was demolished. Kleberg Bank was built.

Rmoreno – do you have any info. on Kingsville’s three drive-in’s – the Brahma, the King, and the El Rancho?

Also, do you remember what block of East Kleberg the Rialto was located in?
