It was remodeled in 1929 and reopened as a live theatre on August 1, 1929 renamed Riviera Theatre. On February 15, 1930 it was equipped with a Vitaphone sound system.
Like a number of Rock Island’s movie houses, it is long gone, having closed around the mid-1950’s. It was still open in 1945, according to the Film Daily Yearbook from that year and had seating for 650.
