We opted to select seats in the balcony because we didn't want to do standing only on the floor. The venue is old and could use some updating but it still remains a classic in the Tucson Downtown neighborhood. The acoustics are average. I try...More

Great venue to see a show. Nothing fancy but if you are a music lover this place won’t disappoint. We were a little concerned when almost immediately upon arriving a couple of groups were escorted out but I’d rather see someone escorted out than have...More

Great show! Cool venue, the balcony & slanted floor helped get better view for sure! Smelled like popcorn but never could find any.

Air condition worked fine! Staff nice and polite. The sound quality was spot on. Seats were not crazy spaced together. It was a fine old theater. Only issue - wish it had video screens.

We went to the Rialto to see Val Kilmer's 1-man show on Mark Twain and were so hot and steamy that we couldn't stand to wait until it was over! It was a "sold-out" show and we were on the floor in row "P". The...More

Went to The Rialto for the Jonny Lang concert last night. Having seen Jonny before, we were extremely looking forward to the show, especially considering we had 6th row seats. Jonny's set started out fantastically and were so hyped for the show! His first 3...More

We visited here with friends for the Adam Ant concert over the weekend. I really wanted to enjoy the venue, as it is a historical location, but the women's restroom was filthy and already out of toilet paper before the main act started, the sound...More
