The September 2, 1927, issue of The Escanaba Daily Press said that the Community Theatre in Gladstone had been purchased by Fischer-Paramount Theatres of Milwaukee, the company that had been operating it under a lease. The house would be renamed the Rialto Theatre, and extensive improvements were planned, including the installation of a Barton Organ.

The building had been built several years earlier by the Northwestern Cooperage and Lumber Company as a community center for its workers.

July 14, 1929, issue of the paper featured several pages of ads placed by various businesses offering congratulations to the Rialto Theatre on its opening.
