Nestled in the small town of Aitkin, MN, with less than 2200 citizens, stands a treasure.  The Rialto has stood for family entertainment in this town for over 80 years.  It's owner, Kirk, recently celebrated his 42nd anniversary with the theater, showing it incredible love through the years.  I was able to speak with Kirk about the history of his theater, and the way the community comes together to support it.  Only a couple hours north of Minneapolis, it is well worth the drive!


America's Classic Cinemas continues to travel across the county, collecting photos and memories of these places that have provided entertainment to so many people.  It is important to give these places an online presence in order to share them with both those who have fond memories, and those whom have never had the opportunity to visit them.  All images are the property of David Leonhardt  unless noted and cannot be used without permission.
