Wasn’t the Rialto on Market Street in Potsdam, NY?

Yes there was a “RIALTO THEATER” in Potsdam . It closed around the late 1950’s. The Massena theater was more of a neighborhood location not too far from the ALCOA plant. I enjoyed many “Francis” the talking mule and “Ma and Pa Kettle” movies here. There was a certain joy to watching a film in one of these old theaters that just doesn’t come across in the new multi-plex theaters. That’s just my opinion. Ray. Charlotte, NC

The August 4, 1926, issue of Variety carried this brief item about the Rialto: “Rialto, seating 486, at Massena, N. Y., has been leased from Frank J. Kuras by Schine Enterprises.” That’s the earliest mention of the Rialto I’ve found so far.
