Rialto Theatre Launches GoFundMe Campaign; Over $21,000 Raised So Far

The Rialto Theatre has launched a GoFundMe campaign to help offset the financial burden they have suffered as a result of the health crisis.

"Unfortunately, the bills do not stop coming in during this temporary closure and we still have to maintain the building, pay for upkeep, as well as pay staff," the campaign statement reads.

The theatre set a goal of $10,000, but has already raised over $21,000.

Beyond this initial goal, the theatre have many further improvements that they would like to accomplish.

Plans include restoring the iconic vertical marquee to its former glory with "RIALTO" in lights, as well as refreshing the existing marquee and remodeling the bar area.
