It's nice to see the Rialto offer a greater variety and quanrity of quality performances. The Paramount offers a greater value theater package, but it is very convenient to go to the Rialto. Still a beautiful theatre with amazing sound quality.

I love going to events at this JEWEL, unfortunately the selection of entertainment doesn't interst me in the least. They did have a touring ballet troupe which we enjoyed very much...need more classical options.

Catch a show or enjoy a really festive holiday event at the Rialto- this is not like most theatres, Truly opulent and I feel like Cinderella when i go there. All seats are good seats.

Great place to visit and see. Landmark for Joliet area. Great shows are held there. Christmas is the best time to see the place.

The main floor is good but if you can get the seats in the first couple rows if the balcony you will be able to see the whole stage.
