Rialto Theater

(Retail/Office Space - 219 N. Harbor Boulevard)

The Rialto Theatre was built in 1905 and remodeled as a fine example of Zigzag Moderne in 1930 when it was transformed into the National Trust Bank. Shallow buttresses have emphasized the northern and southern sides of the façade. Of special interest are the applied grooves and flame patterns, which add to the novelty of this fine structure.
