Rialto Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The historic Rialto Theatre opened in 1921 and was remodeled in 1922. It features a large screen and a sizable balcony. In the mid-2000’s it had a makeover, and now has rocking chair seating, Dolby Digital sound and now uses the original proscenium opening and curtain.

Commonwealth leased the Rialto and the America in the 70’s and possibly further back than that.

The New Lyric was built in 1921 and for some reason it was remodeled in 1922. The 1922 architects were William Dubois and Leon Goodrich. National Register of Historic Places registration form

stephangelos, this may be asking a lot, assuming you even check this site anymore, but since 1975, has there been a planter out front? I’m trying to reconstruct some memories, and I recall seeing a double feature: Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry and Vanishing Point there in 1975, but I can’t remember if it was the Rialto or the America theater. Any help from anyone would be appreciated.
