Information for this tour was contributed by Chad Hauris.

The Rio began operations as the Scott, next door to the original Rio, between 1942 and 1946. The original Rio was closed in about 1956 and demolished. The name "Rio" was moved next door in 1959, when the new Scott Theatre on North Texas opened. The lobby has been renovated, but the auditorium has not. All of the theatre chairs are still in place, but the screen and projection equipment have been removed. It ceased operations as a theatre in about 1975, later becoming the Luna from 1979 to 1983, and may have later been used as a night club.
