The recent opening of the Rialto was mentioned at the end of this item from the January 3, 1920 issue of Moving Picture World:

“Vivian Forms Corporation

“The Vivian Theatres Corporation, of Seattle, was incorporated last October for $100,000 and took over its first theatre on November 23. This was the Madison Theatre, one of the most beautiful suburban houses near Seattle. President Brian B. Vivian has operated theatres for several years on the West Coast. His brokerage department handles a big percentage of the deals turned in the Northwest. The Rialto Theatre, just constructed at a cost of $15,000, has very recently been opened at Anacortes, Wash.”
