The Rialto Theatre opened in 1926 as a vaudeville theatre. It was an open-air theatre, consisting of four walls decorating in a Spanish style and no roof (a true Atmospheric style theatre). The only enclosed spaces were the ticket and projection booths, and a small back-stage area behind the screen. By 1928 it was operating as an airdome movie theatre. It was closed in the early-1930’s.
It was reopened as the Edison Theatre, with 500 seats now under a roof and 400 seats in the open air.
It was a functioning neighborhood theatre showing double feature re-runs until at least 1955. The last time I passed by the site in January of 2002 the building had been converted into a sheet metal shop.
