Rialto Theatre History
(Formerly Crawford Theatre - 1912 Canton, PA)
On May 27th, 2013 the Theatre was temporarily shutdown in order to convert from the old industry standard 35 mm projector to a fully digital projector with 3D capabilities. In addition to the projector conversion, the Rialto also underwent a mini renovation. Thanks to staff, local contractors and wonderful volunteers, the theatre was cleaned from top to bottom and received a new paint job and other needed repairs. The Rialto Theatre reopened with a Red Carpet Event highlighting its first 3D movie, “Star Trek: Into Darkness.”
If you are looking for entertainment, we have it for you. The Rialto offers premiere movies, film festivals, live entertainment on stage ranging from classical to country as well as organizations using the Rialto for lecture series, meetings and much more.
The Rialto Theatre will continue to present national releases while adding to their lineup independent films, classic movies, and film festivals. The “Thursdays at the Rialto” series returns this season and includes a variety of artists and musicians – offering a diverse series of 4 concerts not to be missed!
Our Rialto Theatre's Assistant Manager is Shana Ellison. Each year the Rialto provides employment to local high school youth who work at the concession and ticket booth.
The Rialto is also very fortunate to have an active community based Advisory Committee that organizes and works at events to help raise funds that go to maintain and repair our historic theatre.
