I remember the Rivoli showing mostly or only Disney movies when I was young, perhaps sometime between 1960 and 1970, or at least only G Rated movies.

I’m surprised the State Theater isn’t on the Cinema Treasures list. That oughta be rectified.

The Rivoli stood at the top of the large cleared area approximately where there is a parking lot.

It was actually across the street from where the Bank of America is today. I believe that J&J owns this land now and it is part of their corporate headquarters.
