The Rialto might have been either a replacement for or a rebuilding of a house called the Star Theatre, the demise of which was noted in the November 7, 1925, issue of Motion Picture News:

“The Star theatre in Mine- ville, owned and operated by Mrs. Jennie Anderson, was burned to the ground in a fire that started in an ice house in the rear of the theatre, and which destroyed a hotel as well as a private residence.”
This item from the April 9, 1938, issue of The Film Daily “Theatre Openings” column was mistakenly placed under New Jersey (there is no Mineville in New Jersey):
“Mineville— Rialto, 332 seats (3-3-38); Owner: Thomas Scozzafava; House Manager: Allen Sirrine; closed since 4-1-37.”
