Rialto Square Theatre is excited to announce our year-round movie series called “Reels at the Rialto.” This movie series is a nod to our Vaudeville movie palace past. “It’s important for us to offer a wide variety of entertainment options for the residents of Joliet and surrounding areas,” says Wade Welsh, Rialto Square Theatre Executive Director. “We are thrilled to partner with incredible sponsors so that we can make these movies affordable for everyone.” The sponsors of the Reels at the Rialto movie series are Old National Bank, D’Arcy Buick GMC, Window World, Rendel’s, Legacy Trucking, and Castle Law.

Tickets are $5 each and will be available in advance or the day-of at the Rialto Square Theatre Box Office. Tickets are not available online and will be on sale starting Monday, January 29th. Doors will open 30 minutes before the showtime; a free organ concert will start around that time, and all movies start at 7 PM*. All seating will be general admission—first come, first served. Bar and concessions (including freshly popped popcorn) will be available for purchase.
