Photograph of this business for sale

The Rio Theater, a single screen quonset hut movie theater, began showing movies in 1950 as the Cinema Rio until 1974. After that time, it has promoted concerts, including the Grateful Dead, while continuing with movies off and on. Also, on the property is a cafe with a large composite deck and two additional smaller quonset huts with good tenants. There is beach access through the massive lawn that overlooks the river that has hosted private weddings and company retreats. The current owners took over the Rio in 2014. In that time, they have spent their efforts rehabbing this historical building; tiling, restrooms, lighting and much more.
