There are several references to this theatre which used to exist on Mathewson Street (according to a Providence Journal advertisement) in downtown Providence. It originally was a 19th century church, but in December 1906, became the Scenic Temple. In 1919, it was renamed the Rialto Theatre. References to it can be found in the 1920’s and early-1930’s.
A 1931 Providence Journal Almanac says it was owned by the Rialto Theatre Corporation, Bernard E. Fay, theatre manager.
