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

Seen Sinbad here Nice cozy place, been around along time, if you watch the movie The Babe - staring John Goodman, Babe Ruth went to a show here, and this is the place where Boston Red Soxs owner decided to sell Babe Ruth to the Yankees.

We have enjoyed attending shows at the Rialto. It is a lovely building and if you go for the first time be sure to enjoy the architecture. Looking forward to going again.

This old theater is very cool. Went there for a concert and the sound quality is great. Very ornate, room upstairs was good for pre concert bar and buffet. Great place for a concert as it is not a huge concert venue and you can enjoy good views and feels personal. Parking was a block away and not very expensive.
