Rialto Theater...Aitkin Minnesota

The Rialto Theatre was named after the Rialto Theatre in New York. Originally a 1914 theatre, the Moveum was renamed the Rialto Theatre, but the name was applied to new construction at its current site grand opening On April 30, 1937. Originally it had 612 seats, but some were removed to accomodate the wider screen movies of the 1950’s.

The Rialto Theatre is in a small resort area, and often played two movies a week, with a different one on Friday and Saturday.

I added a page for the Moveum Theatre which was located at 211 Minnesota Avenue N, and is still standing today as a Radio Shack. That one was renamed the Electric and then Rialto before this one was built. It closed when this one opened in 1937.

New page for the original Moveum Theatre down the street.
