Welcome to Backstage Rialto, an organization dedicated to supporting Loveland, Colorado’s historic Rialto Theater Center. 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.


  • Backstage Rialto, a 501(c)3 support organization for the Rialto Theater Center, was founded in 2014 with the intention of assisting the Rialto in its programming efforts by providing additional funding and support for a variety of artistic endeavors.
  • In 2016, thirty-three events were added to the Rialto Theater Center’s programming schedule as a result of Backstage Rialto’s fundraising efforts.
  • In 2017, Backstage Rialto provided the funding for our new Center Channel Speaker System.
