The Rio opened in 1935, built in an unusual mix of Art Deco and Spanish Colonial styles. It sat around 1400, and was designed by Cyril Edward Schley, a protegee of C. Howard Crane, whose best known Detroit work is the former Telenews (most recently housing a nightclub).
The Rio served as a first-run movie house until it closed in the 1960s. It currently houses a furniture store.
