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.

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

I worked part time at the Rialto as a manager for many years. It’s a great treasure. I’m glad it’s still around.

Can’t tell you much about the history of this theater located at 2nd and Center other than the fact that Commonwealth Theaters leased the theater in 80s. In the late 80s it was sold and then remodeled. I remember standing in line several times to watch a double feature for just $1.50. Also remember, as many did waiting to see movies there for a cheap price, as they had play at the theater in Eastridge Mall or Beverly Plaza before moving to the America or Rialto downtown. The first of many double futures watched was BIG and something with John Candy I think. Last year the theater was remodeled once again. The movie screen size was reduced during this remodel.
