I think the Rialto closed as a theater in 1958. It it wasn’t then, it was soon thereafter.

I just posted a new photo. This is a drawing of a theatre addition from the Memphis and Shelby County Board of Adjustment now in the Memphis and Shelby County Room of the Memphis Public Library and Information Center. Used with permission.

It is titled as a prospective addition to the Lamar Theatre but it is not the addition that was actually built. It is dated 1934 and greatly resembles the only image I have ever seen of the Rialto Theatre on Jackson in newsreel footage.
