About The Rialto Theatre

The Arnold Theatre was first started in 1924. Sadly, in 1979 it was closed down for 18 years. In 1997, Sue Beshaler organized a group of community volunteers who started the current restoration project that is still actively going on today. The Rialto is a living testament to what a lot of love and hard work can do to a place...transform.

Today we have seats for 80 people, lighting, a new bathroom and an active board of volunteers who continue work on the building while developing plans and support for the theatre. A recent anonymous donor has purchased an HD projector, a top-of-the-line retractable screen, and a Dolby Surround Sound system. The purchase of the new projector will allow the theatre to show the latest movies.

The Rialto Theatre is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Your tax-deductible donation is greatly appreciated. You may reach us at Arnold Community Theatre/Rialto, PO Box 222, Arnold, NE 69120.

RATED PG-13 • The dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history. During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. While maneuvering his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds.
