The Rivoli Theater opened in 1958 and was operated by Wilby-Kincey. It was designed by Howard J. Riddle and constructed by J.A. Baldwin. The outside façade features two sculptures by Gerard Tempest that hold up two columns. It was taken over by ABC Southeastern Theatres in 1975. Later tasken over by Plitt Southern Theatre. It was last operated by Stewart & Everett from August 3, 1979 and was twinned on March 21, 1980. It was closed in 1985.
There have been several attempts by the city of Myrtle Beach to convert the space into a performing arts center since the city purchased it in 1999 - as of yet nothing has come of that. In the meantime it has become a Christian youth facility. The auditorium has been de-twinned.
