Rialto Square Theatre

The Rialto Square Theatre was built as a movie palace and vaudeville venue in 1926. Today, it is said to be haunted by a woman believed to be a former actress. Employees, construction workers and visitors have seen the female form floating throughout the theater. There are also a male and a female wearing period clothing who haunt the theater’s balcony; some surmise this couple fell to their deaths sometime in the theater’s past.
