The entrance to the Rio was on the right half of the terra cotta clad facade in the Google photo. Note that in the three bays on the Right there are no transom windows. This is where the marquee was. If one goes around the corner and walks up the alley next to the Alameda Theatre, the small brick auditorium structure of the former Rio is obvious.

This theatre’s original art deco painted ceiling still exists underneath the current false drop-ceiling.
