Loveland’s Rialto Theater Center-Free Tour! [POLL]

The expansion celebration for The Rialto Theater in Loveland continues Friday night- For FREE!

Get the details on the renovation and the celebration-inside!

The Rialto Theater opened on 4th street in downtown Loveland in 1920.  It was renovated in 1996; and while it has been charming, it has lacked a lot of functionality due to  space constraints. A few years ago though, they came up with a plan:

So, they tore down those buildings–

On June 1st of 2011, they broke ground on the ‘Rialto Bridge‘ 20,000 sq ft expansion project. I’ll bet if you were to take a poll, a majority of people actually thought there was going to be a bridge. In reality, it was a take on the actual Rialto Bridge in Venice:

I don’t know for sure, but I’m guessing that they got tired of explaining ‘the bridge’ so they made a logical decision and changed the project’s name to “The Rialto Theater Center“.  That makes it pretty clear- it’s a CENTER- there is no bridge.

Even WITHOUT a fancy Venetian bridge– it looks great!
