This is a great place to enjoy entertainment without having to go into the city. They publish their schedule of events well in advance, so that you can plan when to visit. They have something for everyone from comedy to magic to music and more. I love the inside, too. I can't wait to go see Colin and Brad's comedy... More

We nabbed last minute tickets to Straight No Chaser and headed downtown Joliet. This hotel was BEAUTIFUL! We arrived before the auditorium doors opened but the attendants were so friendly and told us historical nuggets about the place. It's a must see if you're ever in Joliet and have a bit of downtime. Such a lovely piece of history!

I went here to see the Ghost Hunters show. It was my first time at this theatre. What a beautiful theatre! It's small and the people who work here are very helpful and friendly. I kept staring at the walls and ceiling because it was all so breathtaking. I would highly recommend going here.

IDEAL venue for concerts. Vaudeville era theater restored to perfection; this was built before sound amplification so audio is excellent. I've been here dozens of times. Rialto also provides tours and if you have the chance do not pass it up.
