I took my grandson to see The Wizard of Oz on the big screen at the Rialto. It was a wonderful experience for both of us, and I am so thrilled I was able to share it with him. The Rialto is a wonderful theater for movies, musicals, plays, really anything, including rock concerts.

I try to go and see either plays or comedy acts here as much as possible. The inside is so beautiful. It is local so I try to patronize it and much as I can. Very nice place to see productions

Don't miss this place if there happens to be anything you're interested in seeing--and that's an issue. Because the programming is erratic, it's hard to plan a visit from out of town. Easy parking. Free. Admission varies, but is never too high. And the place is an architectural treat from the 1930s.

Rialto Square Theatre is beautiful and comfortable venue for whatever is one stag. Have seen several shows - not a bad seat anywhere in the theatre.

As usually I find the elegance of this theater to be beyond words. My girlfriend's grandson had a dance rehearsal there and it was wonderful.

We went here for a concert. This place is absolutely beautiful. It is a well kept older building and definitely worth a visit for a show/play/concert or any other event
