The Venue
The soul of the Rialto doesn't waver far from its origins. This iconic building, originally erected in 1908 as a storefront and U.S. Post Office, and before that a peanut stand on Main Street, became the Rialto theater in 1924. Flourishing in the Roaring 20s, the theater was renowned for silent film screenings, as its Art Deco marquee brought a bit of glitz to Main Street. Finding its personality, as well as its niche, the Rialto eventually shifted toward featuring more independent films. 

Then, 1982 brought a complete renovation, including improvements to the floors, acoustics, seats, and concessions. True to its evolving character, the Rialto showed documentaries, feature films, and classics until it shut its doors in 2005. After sitting vacant for 10 years, the Rialto, under new ownership, reopened in early 2018, completely restored. Bozeman and the surrounding areas now enjoy a vibrant venue and event space that enhances the adventurous nature of our community.

How will the proceeds benefit Guitars for Vets?
Guitars For Vets has fulfilled over 25,000 lessons and distributed over 2500 guitars free to military veterans, but due to limited funding they currently have a cap on how many new chapters can be created to serve vets in more areas. Through this event and our continued support with fundraising throughout the year, we hope to be a valuable partner in getting Guitars For Vets to 100 chapters and expanding to all 50 states in 2018. With your help, it is our hope that this event can be the single largest contribution G4V receives this year. Learn more about G4V
