About The Rialto Theatre

The Arnold Theatre was first started in 1924. Sadly, in 1979 it was closed down for 18 years. In 1997, Sue Beshaler organized a group of community volunteers who started the current restoration project that is still actively going on today. The Rialto is a living testament to what a lot of love and hard work can do to a place...transform.

Today we have seats for 80 people, lighting, a new bathroom and an active board of volunteers who continue work on the building while developing plans and support for the theatre. A recent anonymous donor has purchased an HD projector, a top-of-the-line retractable screen, and a Dolby Surround Sound system. The purchase of the new projector will allow the theatre to show the latest movies.

The Rialto Theatre is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Your tax-deductible donation is greatly appreciated. You may reach us at Arnold Community Theatre/Rialto, PO Box 222, Arnold, NE 69120.

Movies are shown every weekend at 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. on Sundays. Student tickets are $6, adult tickets are $7, and senior tickets on Sundays are $6. Concessions range from $2-$3, a greatly discounted rate from most theaters!

RATED PG • It has been five years since the events of the first film, and the world is at peacetime. This is almost entirely due to the resurgance of superheroes in the world, especially the greatest superhero duo Dash and Violet Parr. Bob and Helen fight crime from time to time, but dedicate most of their time to raising their son Jack-Jack. Jack-Jack is a 6 year old rebel. He has been trying to control his powers, he is an outcast at school because he still can't control his superpowers. His mother and father overprotect him for fear that another villain will come and kidnap him the way Syndrome did 5 years ago. Jack-Jack soon discovers that he can only control his powers when he is angry and villanous. A rising, unknown villain seen only in shadows has noticed this and takes Jack-Jack in as his apprentice. However, Jack-Jack's first task is to kill the Incredibles.
