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 • Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music, and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

RATED PG • All Clara wants is a key—a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip, a gang of mice, and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger, to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.
