Please visit the new website for additional information about the incredible work that the board is doing in support of the Rialto Theater.

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.
  • In 2020, Backstage Rialto purchased live streaming equipment for the Rialto Theater.
  • In 2020, Backstage Rialto hired Heather Rubald as their Development Assistant to help manage fundraising, sponsorships, and grant writing.



If you find it within your means, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the Rialto in support of its 2020 performance season. The Rialto has never needed more help than right now, so do what you can to assist.
