In 1918 Henry Thurston erected an “Air Drome” theater on the southeast corner of Pine and Walnut Streets. In 1922, with the help of the Schine Company, Henry remodeled the “Air Drome” into the Rialto Theater. The Rialto Theater 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 theater business and turned the operation over to his son Ray. In the late-1930’s the Rialto Theater was sold to the Schine Company. The Rialto Theater closed its doors in 1957. The building was eventually demolished and a bank was built on its site.
