The Rivoli Theatre opened on August 15, 1925 with a Reproduco Expression Pipe Organ. The theatre relaunched on January 22, 1941 as the Uptown with the film, “Rhythm on the River.”

This building now houses Lehr Construction Company. Slope floor is still intact, as is some of the interior architecture and the basic elements of the front facade. Kudos to them for keeping the shell intact and in good shape, you never know what could happen in the future…

St. Joseph Memory Lane says that the Uptown Theatre was still called the Rivoli Theatre in 1934. The Uptown showed its last movie on Tuesday, March 1, 1955.

The Rivoli Theatre was listed in the 1927 Film Daily Yearbook.
