The Rio Theatre opened prior to 1933, when it was remodelled to the plans of architectural firm Babin & Neff. It was operated by Jefferson Amusement Co. & East Texas Theatres.

The Rio Theatre closed sometime in the early-1950’s and has since been demolished. The site is the home of the Texas State Bank.

This house was open before 1933, the year in which it was remodeled, according to this item form Motion Picture Herald of September 23:

“BEAUMONT— Rio Moving Picture Company. Contractor, Charles F. Law, Perlstein Building, Beaumont. Remodeling to cost $6,500. Architects, Babin & Neff, Perlstein Building.”
As the item doesn’t give the name of the theater itself, but only that of the company having it remodeled, it’s possible that it had previously operated under a different name.
