Rialto Theatre At 608 Main St.

Highrise Tower

Recommended Posts

I was browsing the newspaper The Houston Post dated February 25, 1924 and came across a weekly film showings schedule. One of the advertisements was for the Rialto Theater. 

Here is what Cinematreasures says:

Located across Main Street from the Queen Theatre, the Rialto Theatre was opened April 13, 1922 with Harold Lloyd in “A Sailor Made Man” and Florence Vidor in “Woman, Wake Up”. It was a ‘reverse’ movie theatre, having the screen at the front behind the façade. It remained a silent theatre when it closed in February 1927 with Reginald Denny in “The Cheerful Fraud”.
