Opened as the Alice Theatre in 1948 seating 712. It got the Rialto name during a later remodel. A beat up fairly large triangle shaped marquee adorns the front of the two story building. “Rialto” was spelled out in Art Deco fashion lighted with neon. On the front of the marquee there is still a big “A”.
The two sets of entrance doors are undoubtably the original doors. They are solid wood and no windows in them. The box office is to the right of the entrance doors.
The Rialto Theatre has been totally neglected since its closing. The entire underside of the marquee is falling off in pieces. The entire front of the building was done in a mixture of colors, from white to yellow to green to multi color bricks on the street level. I am sure in its days though that it did a great job of serving the almost 20,000 people of Alice with the best in motion pictures.
