The Rio Theatre was a second-run theatre that opened sometime in the late-1930’s. The theatre was part of the Joy Theatre chain. Later renamed Avenue Theatre, it was closed in the mid-1960’s and demolished probably by 1975. The site is now a parking lot.

It turns out that this this theater was already listed as the Rio; it should be listed though as the Avenue, because this picture of the theater as the Rio is clearly older than the one I posted above which shows it as the Avenue: View link
