Here are some early photos as well as a view of the Rialto at the time of the conversion to the Capri in 1960:

Listed in the Film Daily Yearbook;1950 edition as being located at South Main Street, East Rochester, NY, with a seating capacity given as 1,020. It must be in either the #300 or #400 blocks of South Main Street.

It’s interesting that the conversion picture is dated 1960, but the sign by the front door refers to an adult theater. I didn’t know there were any strictly adult theaters in 1960.

From the information posted I would say East Rochester. Shouldn’t the person that added this theatre know the location.

It’s East Rochester. I made a mistake when I entered the information. The location should be corrected accordingly.

That’s funny. My old girlfriend lived down the street from there in the 1990’s. I used to see older people out in front of there. I never guessed it was an old theater.
