Originally called the Kinema Theater when it opened on Februstry 14, 1920. The theater was located in the Clift Building. It was renamed the Rialto Theater on June 18, 1927, and had 820 seats.

It was last operated as a cinema under the name of Midtown Trolley Theater from April 1, 1976, showing discount movies. The Trolley theater chain was taken over by Plitt, which later became Cineplex Odeon.

The theater closed sometime in the 1980’s. It became the Broadway Stage in 1989, used for live entertainment, and in 1993 it became the Broadway Family Theatre. Since 1994 it has been known as the Off Broadway Theatre.
