The Old Mill Theater on Elm Street downtown reopened after an extensive remodeling as the Rialto in 1935, according to Jeanette Crumpler’s book “Street of Dreams.” Guess by then the name had become available.

Update to the above: In 1926 the theater housed the Oak Cliff Little Theater, using dressing rooms and offices across the alley from the building.

After closing, the Astor sat empty for a few years, then became the Astor Nightclub. Following that incarnation it housed Key Transfer and Storage Company and a 1960 fire almost destroyed the building.

No longer even resembling a theater or adorned with anything to show that it was a showplace for films and live theater, it was recently an antique/art store and is currently vacant.
