This movie theatre for sale first opened its doors nearly 90 years ago, and now, it’s up for sale to anyone interested in it. I don’t see the point to buy an abandoned theatre, but if you are rich enough, and you have a passion for movies or old buildings or vintage stuff, then I guess this is a good deal. So, be quick if you want to purchase this fancy endangered movie theatre, someone might buy it while we were speaking! For further information, you can contact: FriendsoftheRialto@gmail.com
