The Rialto was advertised in the December 27, 1921 issue of The Union Daily Times. A house called the Grand was also advertised. Either house might have dated back to 1916, when the October 5 issue of Manufacturers Record reported that the contract had been let for a 50x150-foot theater at Union for a Mr. J. Cohen. Local newspapers from around that time should have more information, if someone with access can track it down.
