Here is a photo of the Rialto. The Rialto can also be seen in the background in this 1954 newspaper story.

The Cozad chamber of commerce site says the Rialto is closed. I called the number, (308) 784-3770, but it was disconnected.

At site now. Posters, DVDs still in lobby but ceiling and fixtures are torn and plaster is everywhere.

There is still a “now showing” poster in the lobby for “Open Season” which implies a 2006 closure.

Remarkably, all the video boxes are still in the video store portion. This theatre seems to have been abandoned almost overnight.
