Rialto Theatre

Opened more than a century ago in 1922, the Rialto Theatre in Tucson, Arizona is a rare surviving example of a classic live performance venue from the days of the Roaring Twenties. The theater and its surrounding block of buildings were added to the US National Register of Historic Places in 2003 for their architectural, artistic, and cultural significance. The Rialto Theatre has shifted through many phases of use in its years, beginning as a combined cinema and live music/vaudeville venue before becoming a movie theater more or less exclusively for many decades. In recent years, the Rialto Theatre has been reinvented as a live concert venue that draws in major touring act as well as local talent. Comedy shows have also become a big draw.
