The Rialto Theatre Foundation is an organization dedicated to the stewardship and management of the historic Rialto Theatre. The Foundation is managed by Executive Director/GM/Programming Director Curtis McCrary, with the support of an all-volunteer board of directors.
Like the Hotel Congress, its sister structure across Congress Street, the Rialto was built by the California-based firm William Curlett and Son. Like all Rialtos (and there are many extant worldwide) the name hearkens to a medieval covered bridge in Venice around which novelty shops were built, providing a de facto “entertainment district” when no such thing existed. “Rialtos” were plazas where the common man could go for fun, as “Theatres” and “Operas” were reserved for the nobility and the wealthy.
