The Rialto Memory Project

Do you, your parents, grandparents, or friends, have memories or stories of the Rialto — whether in its current state or a bygone era? We’d like to have them for our archives and to share as part of our Centennial year celebrations. We are also looking for Rialto memorabilia & artifacts — photos, articles, signs, or other material items that will help us comprise a more complete history of your Rialto.

Please submit memories, stories, or memorabilia HERE!

$100,000 for 100 Years – Donate to Reach our Goal!

As we prepare to protect and steward the historic Rialto Theatre for the next 100 years, we’ve launched a campaign to raise $100,000 to start out our next century strong and ready. Thanks to a generous gift of $20,000 from Max McCauslin & John Smith, we’re already 20% there! Will you help us reach our goal with a special 100th Anniversary gift today?
