This was our first time at Rialto, and we have no complaints. In fact, we loved how small the theatre is because you can get so close to the artists. Since the concert ended at a reasonable time, we were able to explore Congress St...More

We saw Lake Street Dive here at the Rialto last night, and It was a great time! It is a historic theatre, so don't expect to be amazed by anything fancy, but it was cool in the auditorium despite the large crowd, there was some...More

Saw Future Islands this week. Happy to report that the HVACS was up and running. Temperature in the balcony way comfortable. I assume that the ground floor was a bit cooler. A properly operating air conditioning is a big plus.

The Rialto in downtown Tucson is a great little venue for a concert. Small enough to be relatively intimate with the performers along with great amenities such as a full-service bar and out door areas for smokers like me.

The Rialto has to be experienced to be appreciated. I’ve seen several concerts here ranging from reggae, Cajun, country, to jazz. Sometimes you stand sometimes you sit just depends on how they have it set up so be sure you ask if you want a...More

This eccentric theater is home, to some of the best shows in town. The Rialto opened in 1920. There is an old fashioned ticket booth in front. The checker board floor, is at incline, as you enter. The walls are decorated with unique poster art....More

The theatre is old but very charming! I was told that they used to show movies there, but it has been converted to a music venue. Because it is an older theatre the bathrooms are not designed for lots of people who are probably drinking!...More

Attended the amazing Celebrating David Bowie show at the Rialto Theatre. Despite being long time area residents, this was our first time there. Not really sure why we had not attended anything there before, but we’re not fans of GA shows and mistakenly thought all...More
