We visited here with friends for the Adam Ant concert over the weekend. I really wanted to enjoy the venue, as it is a historical location, but the women's restroom was filthy and already out of toilet paper before the main act started, the sound...More

The venue was not good for a crowd this size. There was no air on so it was soooo hot inside. The security people were far from friendly. Not a good set up on getting people inside the venue. It was not an organized event...More

We saw Elvis Costello here earlier this month and it was fantastic. Seating was all assigned and even though we were very near the back, we could see just fine. Sound was great. Alcohol is served here as well and that's a bonus! Finally, this...More

Went on the spur of the moment to see John Hiatt. Fun to hear a fabulous concert in a small venue with a rich history and great sound.

We joined a small crowd for Jim Brickman's holiday (& more) show. And, enjoyed good seats, albeit on padding folding chairs. The Rialto offers a variety of shows at reasonable prices. Staff & volunteers are friendly, helpful. Good to see the theater gaining ground financially...More
