The building now houses the “Quilt Stitches” store at 516 Court Street.

An article about the new Fox Theatre in the January 18, 1949, issue of the Beatrice Daily Sun said that the Rivoli Theatre had been closed Sunday (January 16.) The July 18 issue of the paper said that the Rivoli building was then being remodeled as the new location of Hested’s store. It later became the home of Knowles Music.

An April 30, 2003, Daily Sun article about the recent restoration of the Rivoli building’s facade (link) said that the Rivoli Theatre had opened on September 27, 1926. The “opening” in the October 5, 1926 ad OCRon posted in the photo section must refer to the opening of the Red Grange movie, not the opening of the theater itself. The actual opening feature at the Rivoli was the Constance Talmadge movie The Duchess of Buffalo.
