Rio Theater

Myrtle Creek, Oregon 97457, United States

Created By: Myrtle Creek Historical Society


Many Myrtle Creek and local area residents remember going to the movies at the Rio Theater, which moved to this location on First Avenue after fire burned the old theater on Main Street. The new theater opened on Friday, January 9, 1953. Unfortunately, the interior of the Rio has since been remodeled to the extent that it cannot be restored to its original condition. However, there is currently effort in progress to restore the sign, marquee and outside lobby of this nostalgic landmark
