I enjoy going to the movies. The Rialto really needs to get NEW seating! When you first sit it feels like you are falling backwards. The seats are so old. I have friends who are rather large. They cannot even fit in the seats. Otherwise...More

Love the Rialto as the seats are so comfortable! Saw the Darkest Hour with Gary Odom and it was really worth seeing. Enjoy this theater. It is well maintained and is a pleasure to experience.

The theater offers the most recent films to view there. The prices are reasonable and the seats are fairly comfortable. Take a sweater with you as it frequently gets a bit cold in there.
