Support Rialto through 1926 Campaign


Rialto Square Theatre kicks off the 1926 Campaign to celebrate its 98th anniversary on May 24. This campaign encourages supporters of the historic theatre to donate $19.26, or more, to help generate funds for the normal upkeep of the theatre and raise awareness for our 100th birthday on May 24th, 2026!

The Rialto Square Theatre opened on May 24, 1926, as a Vaudeville Movie Palace in the heart of downtown Joliet. Now, 98 years later, it is a historic performance venue where some of the greatest musicians and comedians have performed and with the generous support of those who contribute to the 1926 Campaign, we look forward to the performances that take place in the next 98 years!

Donations can be made at any time of the year, but our 1926 Campaign will run from May 1st, 2024, to May 31st, 2024, with an emphasis on our birthdate, May 24th.
