The Rialto Theatre at Boone, Iowa, was mentioned in the January 13, 1929, issue of The Film Daily, so it must have been open by 1928 at the latest. This comment by IowaBackroads on our Boone Theatre page says that the Rialto Theatre was destroyed by a fire and was subsequently replaced by the Boone Theatre on the same site. CinemaTour’s Rialto page says that the fire took place on September 10, 1966.
