Rio 65th Anniversary Season Kick-Off "Sunset Boulevard"

Special Screening on Sat May 23rd at 7pm

Sunset Boulevard at 7pm

Help kick off the summer in style and celebrate the 65th Anniversary Season of the Rio Theater this Memorial Day. We are going back in time to celebrate with a special screening of one of the greatest films of American cinema, and arguably the greatest movie about Hollywood, “Sunset Boulevard”, which was nominated for eleven Academy Awards in 1950. Dress up in your best 1950s gear and take pictures on the red carpet in front of the Rio's famous marquee. 

Meet, Greet & BBQ on the Theater Patio, 4-7pm

In addition to the usual Rio concessions, the front patio will be set up for meet & greet with some of the Rio’s co-owners, who will share about plans and special events coming during this special anniversary season at the Rio. 

We're also excited to welcome Tim, a Guy and his Grill, to serve his tasty barbecue outside while we enjoy the afternoon sunshine from 4pm-7pm next to the Rio Theater patio. Tim grew up on an apple orchard in Sebastopol, and left his job in the Energy field to follow his dream of mastering the pit and feeding people mouth-watering food.
