Information for this tour was contributed by Konrad Schiecke.
The Rialto Theatre opened in 1919 with 2250 seats and was located on Main Street. It was a conversion of the Sylvandell Dance Hall, which was built in 1915. There was a bowling alley in the basement and a new pipe organ was installed in the theatre. In October 1928, the Rialto burned to the ground in what was termed the "million dollar fire."
