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.

This is a great place to see theatre productions and musical talents. The place is old fashioned and beautiful and hosts a large selection of shows. A great family venue.

This is one of the most beautiful theaters you will find in the world. Very flashy and historic--reminiscent of the 1920's--I bet it's older than that--don't know the history.

It's always a nice stop, such a beautiful old historic theater. And now they have tours on Tuesdays. It's such an architectural treat.

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.

Tin Roof is very good and just a block from the Rialto.
