Previous Names: Hippodrome Theater
The Hippodrome Theater opened on October 21, 1913 with a seating capacity of 1,674. The theater was originally a vaudeville house. In 1931, the theater was renamed the Rialto Theater and switched to a movies-only policy, operated as part of the Balaban & Katz chain of Chicago. By the early 1950’s, it was part of the Kerasotes Theatres chain of Springfield.
The Rialto Theater was razed in the late-1970’s, to make way for the Peoria Civic Center.
