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.

I am the Property Manager of The Capri Apartments which used to be The Rialto Theatre. The black embossed tin ceiling is in what is now the attic and I found the red velvet curtains up there too… but they were decaying. I also found the rolls of carpet that ran between the aisles. The correct address now is 400 Main Street, East Rochester, NY. As far as I know Main Street is just Main Street…. not South or North. Vicki

I was in that theater as a little girl. I visited my great aunts that lived on Elm Street about 15 houses up on the left and walked there to the movie by myself at age 9 (back in 1960. I remember the inside and the popcorn. Those were the days when the movie theaters were safe and kids could walk to the movie and back for cartoons.
