Texas Consolidated closed the Rio Theatre at the end of a 10-year lease on March 19, 1951 with Leo Gorcey & the Bowery Boys in “They’re in the Army Now.” The building was then converted for other retail purposes.

The Rio opened on March 15, 1941, just 24 hours right after the Palace reopened its doors after remodeling. The Rio opened with Rufe Davis in “Barnyard Follies” as a Saturday matinee only.

While the caption of Randy Carlisle’s photo (linked in the previous comment) says that the Rio Theatre was at 227 N. Beaton Street, Google’s street view shows it at 202 N. Beaton (west side, second building north of 5th Avenue.) It is currently occupied by the local offices of a medical services company called Family Care of Texas.
