The Rialto has been purchased by a non-profit to be remodeled / expanded to be the centerpiece of a new downtown theatre district in El Dorado. Think Shakespeare and such. Tentative plans are to open for business summer of 2015.

According to the current Google Street view, the Rialto is now open as a live music venue. Karaoke featured every Wedneday night. Could not find a website listing for them though.

I can’t find any current showtimes, but that’s not always definitive.

If you scroll about a quarter of the way down, there is an interesting treatise on the Rialto and some other El Dorado theaters here. It’s the first article in Volume 2 of the journal.

If I rest, then I have to work. This is my excuse not to work. Don’t interfere.

A Moller organ, opus 4310, was installed in this theatre in 1925.
