I am the current operator of the Rivoli. It is not closed, but we only have occational concerts. The Rivoli will soon be getting a facelift on the inside. We will be fixing up the lobby and adding a bar on the inside. We will still have concerts, but we will have wedding receptions, private parties, special events, and general bar/dance club nights. Anyone with pictures or memorabilla from the Rivoli, we would love to have them. Posting pictures would be great too. I would like to renovate the lobby with an old time original look. Please help!
