I took my 7 year old, she had never seen the movie and this was an Excellent opportunity to see a classic movie at a VERY CLASSIC LOCATION like the Very Beautiful Rialto Theatre. It is a wonderful facility that has year long events to attend. Music concerts, Plays, wedding events and much more!

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

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.
