this picture is NOT the Rialto but it is the LYRIC Theater. Perhaps the Rialto predated the Lyric at this location and I cannot attest to that… but this is the building that was built as the Lyric Theater which is currently under an extensive restoration project.

Chuck, I believe BamaFnNTn was referring to the Street View image, which is indeed set on the Lyric Theatre. I don’t think the vintage photo currently displayed had been uploaded yet when the comment was made.

Move Street View almost two blocks east and you can see that the Rialto building still has the name Rialto on it, though it has no resemblance to a theater. 1923 3rd Avenue North now houses the offices of Moore Solutions, a company that sells furniture to commercial and institutional customers, but the company’s name is not on the building. It just says Rialto.

It is the Rialto. I worked on it when the present owner remodeled it into a loft upstairs, and business space downstairs. http://www.bhamwiki.com/w/Rialto_Theatre

It appears that in 1915 the Rialto had a Reproduco Photoplayer which was replaced by their Pilcher organ in 1921.
