In 1918 Henry Thurston erected an “Air Drome” theatre on the southeast corner of Pine Street and Walnut Street. In 1922, with the help of the Schine Company, Henry remodeled the “Air Drome” into the Rialto Theatre which opened on November 11, 1924 operated by the Schine Circuit Inc. The Rialto Theatre seated 1,400 people and featured cowboy movies and a serial every Saturday. They still had live entertainment plus an organ to entertain people before the show started.
In 1924, Henry decided to retire from the theatre business and turned the operation over to his son Ray. The Rialto Theatre closed its doors in 1957. The building was eventually demolished and a bank was built on its site.
