Try the Forum Theater in Metuchen, NJ. Not Monmouth but in neighboring Middlesex County. It’s in great shape. The current owners just couldn’t make it work as a multi media venue heavy on live performance and children’s programming.
For the record, the Rivoli is now a Furniture store. The bank is next door. I know. I was there every Saturday morning in the mid to late 50’s.
I can still remember the ticket booth on the right, walking through the ornate doors, up the slight inclined floor, the snack bar on the left. A quick right, then left into the theater, or right at the snack bar, then right again up the stairs to the mezzanine.
At that time the afternoon’s delight was 25 cents.
