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.

RATED PG • Inspired by the 1987 true story, “McFarland, USA” follows novice runners from McFarland, an economically challenged town in California’s farm-rich Central Valley, as they give their all to build a cross-country team under the direction of Coach Jim White, a newcomer to their predominantly Latino high school. Coach White and the McFarland students have a lot to learn about each other but when White starts to realize the boys’ exceptional running ability, things begin to change. Soon something beyond their physical gifts becomes apparent—the power of family relationships, their unwavering commitment to one another and their incredible work ethic. With grit and determination, the unlikely band of runners eventually overcomes the odds to forge not only a championship cross-country team but an enduring legacy as well. Along the way, Coach White realizes that his family finally found a place to call home and both he and his team achieve their own kind of American dream.
