Rivoli 3 Theatre

Opened as a 1,500-seat single screen movie theatre on March 25, 1927 with Shirley Mason in “Sweet Rosie O'Grady” & “Don’t Fire” a comedy short starring Bobby Vernon. There were also vaudeville acts on stage and it was equipped with a Kilgen organ.

The RivoliTheatre was later converted to a triplex by Fridley Theatres. It has retained the detailed architecture in the original auditorium and tried to use the same detail in the two newer auditoriums.

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?
