everyone should have the chance to visit the Rialto. It is absolutely beautiful. I have been there for movies when I was dating. I have been there for concerts, plays, recitals, classes with Community Leadership School, Festival of trees and other events, including an Anniversary party and a memorial for Rob Calcaterra

I have been to several of these old theaters, all very pretty. This is one of the largest I've been in. Nearly twice the size of others. I didn't get a good look at the seats with the lights on but in a dimly lit theater, this ranks up there as one the nicer ones. Sound quality was spot on... More

Wow! What a great venue. The location, the inexpensive parking that is convenient, the atmosphere, and the stage, all made for a great night. I saw America here last night and I would not hesistate to go back! I was disappointed with America, but I think this place would suit any artist. I would recommend getting balcony seats because the... More

This is a beautiful old theater, where I spent many Saturdays as a kid for 50 cents. Now it houses great live entertainment, including concerts, plays and children's shows. The last show we saw there was Brian Setzer's Christmas Show, which was amazing. If you're in the area, it really is a great place to see a show. Our next... More

We came here to see Dave Mason's Traffic Jam show. The theatre is beautifully ornate, and well kept up. The ushers, hat check man, etc. (all volunteers, I'll bet) were helpful and cordial. We had seats in row M on the main floor. The sound was as good as I've experienced anywhere. Wonderful venue!

Beautiful theater. Really something to see, whether for an event or on a tour. Visited one time for a concert. Seats were average theater chairs but legroom was plentiful. Theater was clean. We purchased our concert tickets in person at their box office. Friendly staff member took care of us and gave us a lot of her time in helping... More

We have attended this lovely theater many times, and just went to see Mannheim Steamroller's Christmas Spectacular here! We sat back pretty far, but there are no bad seats in this theater. They sell pop and alcohol there, and fare like cookies and cakes. Space is utilized well for autograph sessions, and the floors sparkle with cleanliness. Memberships are available... More

Attended the Mannheim Steamroller concert at this elegant and classic theater. The acoustics were great and the venue was comfortable. Take the time to explore the inside of the theater. Parking was easy. The surrounding area did not offer much after concert places to go - a quiet area. Will return for other concerts.
