The Rialto Theater Center opened as a silent movie theater in 1920 and is currently Loveland’s premier performing arts venue, welcoming nationally touring musicians, comedians, and performers as well as local performing arts groups.

The mission of the Rialto Theater is to serve as a center for the cultural arts, enriching the community by offering the opportunity for all ages and backgrounds to experience high quality, diverse, affordable performing arts, films and educational activities.

Box Office Hours:

Tuesday – Friday: 12:30 – 5:30 pm

Box Office is open 45 minutes before ticketed events for ticket sales to that event only.

What makes the Rialto Unique?

History remains an integral part of the Rialto’s identity. We provide patrons with the unique opportunity to enjoy a nationally touring act one night and an authentic 1920s film experience the next. Please refer to our schedule to learn more about our silent film series.

Liquor License
We share a liquor license with Next Door Food & Drink. Patrons may purchase a beverage from the bar window (or bar cart if it’s available) and enjoy it in the comfort of the theater. Food is also permitted in the theater, and our full-service snack bar offers a variety of delicious treats.

Volunteer Staff
Our theater is run by a small staff and a corps of over 100 volunteers. The people you see working at shows are at the Rialto because they love the theater and support the performing arts in Loveland.

City Owned and Operated
The Rialto Theater Center, the Loveland Museum/Gallery, and the Art in Public Places Program are part of the City of Loveland’s Cultural Services Department.
