Information for this tour was contributed by Jack Fleming.
The theater was located just off the corner of 16th and Curtis. Curtis street in Denver was at one time the most lit street in the US. It was also located across the street from the Tabor Theater which was built by Horace E. Tabor (of Leadville and the silver mines) and at one time was the highlight of the Denver theaters (Tabor Theater faced on 16th St. and the Rialto faced on Curtis St.). Curtis St. at one time had at least 5 theaters.
I can't remember the size, it had a balcony and the one thing I do remember was the Managers office was underneath the balcony and above the lobby ceiling and to gain entrance you had to go through a small door on your hands and knees. It also had what they called a counting office just off the lobby, large enough for two people and a desk.
When I managed it, Fox Inter-Mountain had removed the large banner art work and had installed a marquee.
