Great venue to see a show. Nothing fancy but if you are a music lover this place won’t disappoint. We were a little concerned when almost immediately upon arriving a couple of groups were escorted out but I’d rather see someone escorted out than have...More

Air condition worked fine! Staff nice and polite. The sound quality was spot on. Seats were not crazy spaced together. It was a fine old theater. Only issue - wish it had video screens.

Went to The Rialto for the Jonny Lang concert last night. Having seen Jonny before, we were extremely looking forward to the show, especially considering we had 6th row seats. Jonny's set started out fantastically and were so hyped for the show! His first 3...More

We visited here with friends for the Adam Ant concert over the weekend. I really wanted to enjoy the venue, as it is a historical location, but the women's restroom was filthy and already out of toilet paper before the main act started, the sound...More
