March 25, 1927 launch day for the Rivoli with Shirley Mason in “Sweet Rosie O'Grady and a Bobby Vernon comedy short, “Don’t Fire” supported by vaudville acts. The 1,500 seat theatre was said to be at capacity.
A brief history of the Rivoli, and two photos, can be seen on this web page from the Adams County Historical Society. It says that in 1995 the
Alexandria Hotel portion of the complex in which the the Rivoli was located was demolished to make way for the additional screens of the current Rivoli 3.
The Kilgen organ from the Rivoli was installed in the Mayfair Triplex, West New York, NJ, in 1998. There are no longer any movielistings for the Mayfair on the Internet, so it probably closed earlier this year. There’s no word on what will become of the organ now if the theater doesn’t reopen. Maybe the Rivoli could get it back?
From 2010 in Hastings photos of the Rivoli Theatre Here and Here.
