Searcy comes together to revive Rialto Theater


SEARCY, Ark. (KTHV) - In Searcy, there's a project underway to restore one of its historic landmarks, The Rialto Theater.

The movie theater was built in the 1920's and still stands as one of the area's most well-known movie theaters. It still shows select movies for a dollar on Tuesdays and pays homage to the 1950's., but as with any building it's had its fair share of wear, and a local group of Searcians is trying to raise money to renovate it.

"A lot of people like nostalgia and that's what the Rialto is to me," said local Nancy Showalter, who has lived in Searcy her whole life and now owns Stott's Pharmacy in downtown.

"It's the cornerstone. We have the courthouse and I would really say the next building would be the Rialto," added James Carson who was also born and raised in the town of 22,000.
