Nearly 15,000 through Rialto in two weeks!
The month of October at the Rialto Theatre started with a bang. For the two-week period of October 3 to October 16, the Rialto Theatre's doors were open every day but one, with 16 separate events taking place, sometimes multiple events in a single day, including a concert at the Fox Tucson Theatre. Total attendance was nearly 15,000! Shows ranged from indie darlings Spoon to Blues Traveler, Tech N9ne, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, the spectacular Rialto 90th Birthday Party with a showing of the 1924 silent film The Mine with the Iron Door with live musical accompaniment, and ending with the ever-popular Club Crawl, where nearly 4,000 people came to check out the line-up at the Theatre. The Rialto Theatre is rocking Downtown Tucson, and the fall is just getting started.
