I was a high school student when the Rivoli came down. I have many great memories of this theatre. The last time I was in it, I craweled under the fence late one night after demolition had started (kids, don’t try this at home, you can get hurt really bad). I sat on a pile of rubble on top of what used to be the orchestra pit and looked out at the night sky, as the roof already was gone. it was very sad. On a side note, some of pipe ranks of the Wurlitzer pipe organ, which was removed long before the demolition, can still be heard today, playing the organ installed in the Hedback Theatre in Indianapolis.
