The old Grand Theatre on West Race Street was razed in 1923 and rebuilt that year. Five years later, the name of the theater was changed to the Rialto Theatre. In 1939, the Rialto Theatre received a beautiful Streamline Moderne style facelift, complete with a new facade, neon-lit large marquee and elegant interior decor. The Rialto Theatre was again remodeled in 1949 by the Boller Brothers firm when it was part of the Commonwealth Amusements circuit.
This wonderfully maintained theatre is now owned by the city of Searcy and leased. It is one of only a small number of single-screen historic movie houses in the state that still operates daily and features weekend matinees.
