Rialto Theatre

Opened in 1924 as the Isis Theatre, by 1928 it was known as the Wesley Theatre and by 1934 the Rialto Theatre. It received its final name, the Arnold Theatre in 1955 and closed in 1979.

In 1997, Sue Beshaler organized a group of community volunteers who started the current restoration project that is still actively going on today with the theatre back to the Rialto Theatre name. The Rialto Theatre is a living testament to what a lot of love and hard work can do to a place.

Today they have seats for 80 people, reduced from the original 400, lighting, a new bathroom and an active board of volunteers who continue work on the building while developing plans and support for the theatre. A recent anonymous donor has purchased an HD projector, a top-of-the-line retractable screen, and a Dolby Surround Sound system. The purchase of the new projector will allow the theatre to show the latest movies.

The Rialto Theatre is a 501©3 nonprofit organization. Movies are shown every weekend at 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. on Sundays.
