According to the visit notes prepared by Marc Zimmermann for the CTA visit in May 2012 the Rialto opened in May 1956, having been built on the site of an earlier Rialto that had been destroyed by German bombing. It seated 1,000 on an (unusually) level stalls floor and raked balcony. It closed in 1988 and was acquired by the Malta Labour Party and used for political functions before being stripped of its seats. It was listed as a Grade 2 heritage site in 2010 and the first steps towards full refurbishment are currently uderway.
