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.

Movies are shown every weekend at 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. on Sundays. Student tickets are $6, adult tickets are $7, and senior tickets on Sundays are $6. Concessions range from $2-$3, a greatly discounted rate from most theaters!
