The RIALTO: One of the old Broadway movie theaters that has, obviously, not been graced with the magnificent restoration work recently done on the Orpheum (which is just down the street from the Rialto). Note the vestiges of its noble movie past with the name of one of the great stars of MGM still clinging precariously to this side of the old marquee. I remember those old classic plastic letters to well, not to mention the great Esther Williams who is still one of my favorite stars.
Hopefully the many classic old theaters on this stretch of Broadway will be saved by the wonderful restoration work that has begun with the Orpheum. Photo by/COPYRIGHT: Ross Care
