The River Hills Theatre & Riviera Theatre is a rare example of two theatres, in the same building, which operated under different names; and not as a twin.
The River Hills side was designed to show single-strip Cinerama films and the Riviera Theatre side was designed to show regular movies in a twin configuration.
The theatres were built by the former Davis Theatres at the same time as the Riviera Theatre in Sioux City.
Sadly, the River Hills Theatre & Riviera Theatre was closed by Carmike Cinemas. It was demolished in March 2002 and the Wells Fargo Arena has been built on an expanded site.
