  • The Rialto Theater is a historic part of Tucson and has showcased events for all genres. Last night I was there attending a Muay Thai Boxing Event, and was surprised to see so many people! The the theater is manly a stand-up theater in the main area, but does have seating in the balcony area. This is definitely something you need to know if you are planning to see an event there! They have a couple of bar areas for drinks and restrooms to use for intermission. It's an Historic experience. Recommend :)
  • I've enjoyed this place for as long as I've been coming here. For the shows I have seen, they have been great. The beer selection is decent but good enough. It is also nice that you can purchase drinks from R Bar next door. They have good bathrooms and they have the portable restrooms outside. The sound is usually very good, though I have had experiences where the sound was off.
  • Been going here for years. Always a blast. Excellent staff, both service and security. Always been well taken care of even in unfavorable situations that can arise with crowds of that size and nature, they always handle things quickly, fairly and safely. Great setup in such a beautiful historical building. Great selection and diversity of shows. Fair prices.
  • Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Tucson. Their bathroom facilities we're recently updated and are a vast improvement to what they used to be. There are two levels to the viewing area however the balcony is usually off limits for small shows or it is an extra charge to go up there or people with annual memberships may go up there. The bottom floor area is spacious with no columns obstructing your view and the floor is gradually sloped concrete. For more mellow shows, folding chairs are put out on either side of the bottom viewing area. The stage is a pretty typical size (maybe a tad bit smaller) but definitely not huge. The sound can be very good. I have had mixed results based on the band's sound person. There is plenty of space to reposition yourself around the sound cones emenating from the large stacks of speakers to give your ears some.equalizer options. There is a bar at the back of the bottom floor viewing area. The exit spills into a large (fairly clean) alley where there are several bars and food places nearby.
  • Went there twice 4 years apart and it didn't disappoint either time.. seen Stephan Marley now atmosphere. Loved both times except the no re-entry sign .. would have loved to go get my ID from the car
