As the Astor looks today

This was a small neighborhood theater, part of the Foy’s Neighborhood Theater chain which opened November 6, 1919 as the Rialto Theatre in a trolley-stop neighborhood center at 7th Street and Bishop Avenue in southwest Dallas suburb of Oak Cliff.

Foy’s was a chain of small neighborhood theaters, all at trolley-stop corners in Dallas. They included the Columbia Theater, Ideal Theater, and Colonial Theater.

The theater later was bought by the Robb-Rowley Chain in Dallas, then closed in 1947.

Do you still have seats for sale? I need approximately 40 for my martial arts studio.

The map location is incorrect. The theater was on Bishop Ave. NOT Bishop Grauman. It’s in the Bishop Arts District.
