This C. Howard Crane-designed theater opened in 1917, and featured an early form of stadium-style seating, with a steeply sloping auditorium floor. Therefore, there was no need for a balcony and it could seat around 1350. The Rialto's exterior was very similar to his Capitol (now the Detroit Opera House), which was built in 1922. The Rialto closed in 1968, and has since been demolished.
