Rialto Covid-19 Preventative Measures

AS OF 18 March 2020

Dear Friends of the Rialto Theatre,

Ater much deliberation, the Rialto Theatre will be temporarily suspending operations after tonight’s show, Wednesday, March 18th, in an attempt to support the health and well-being of the local community and with particular concern for at-risk groups.

Despite having recently implemented increased sanitation, reduced seating capacity, social distancing and other precautionary measures, we believe the best course of action is a temporary suspension of operations.

As a local icon, the Rialto Theatre, attracts patrons from all over the region, and as such needs to consider the well-being of not only its patrons, but the communities they are from. By suspending operations voluntarily The Rialto is prioritizing the health and safety of its patrons, staff, and the community at large, including our most vulnerable populations.

The Rialto Theatre appreciates the public’s patience and understanding during this time and looks forward to welcoming customers back to the theatre upon reopening.

Please stay safe and stay healthy.

Bill Peebles,               The Historic Rialto
