The staff is great. Good selection of candy and soda. The actual seating is kind of tight, and the microwave burgers and hot dogs not great. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. It's clean and easily accessible. Two actual theaters, one very small, and...More

Omg $5 per person for a new movie. Who could ask for better? The rialto is an old fashion movie theater that has been maintained nicely. Main theater is good sized. Our movie was in "small theater" which had about 40 seats.

Wooden floor, antique cinema chairs, friendly people, food for sale. It is very nice. The screen in the room we were in had some physical blemishes that you could see shining back at you in certain parts of the movie.

Travel back to when theaters were the highlight of the town. Amazingly well-kept retro theater with iron-clad seating, beautiful wooden floors, table seating for large groups or parties, and amazing prices!

This theater is fun with its old time charm. It still has the original seats in the main movie theater. The staff was very friendly. Making our visit even better. The movie played without interruption. And you can't beat the $5 price for matinees.

Although it mainly shows crashing car/high testosterone movies in the summer, this is a wonderful old time movie theater. Admission is cheap; popcorn is fresh and cheap, never too full. And they support the local community by staging children's theater, by having free children's movies...More

I enjoy going to the Rialto. It's locally owned and operated which makes it nice. The inside is the old style with the old wooden floors and old fashioned seats. They have an area for wheelchair customers. The best thing I like is lots of...More

Remember the last time you visited a movie theater with very reasonable ticket prices ($5 matinee prices for all shows), comfortable seating, and all delivered in the charming setting of a traditional small town film venue? Most of us can't remember that time. Good news-...More
