The Rialto Theater opened in 1908 as the National Theatorium, according to this web page citing a 1964 article by Maymie Krythe in the Long Beach Independent Press Telegram. There are two photos showing the theater.

The caption of a photo of the National Theatorium published in the December 31, 1910, issue of The Film Index says that the house was then being operated by Mr. G.O. Post.

This theatre was in the Pike area, roughly between the Tracy (ex-Capitol) and Strand (ex-Hoyt’s) Theatres.
