The Riviera in Three Rivers is restored and open, showing first-run festival (or alternative) feature films and live acts. Restoration began in 2006 and was completed in 2008 (I believe).

I saw my first movie, Goldfinger, at the Riviera Theater in 1966, when I was twelve. I have gone to many other movies there throughout the years. I was dismayed the last time my husband and I went to a movie in the late 90's. The theater was run down and full of unruly kids that the owners could not control. You cannot imagine my surprise and joy when I went to see a Halloween burlesque show last week. I was blown away by the restored beauty of the theater!!! Loved it and will come back again!!

After being closed for several years, this place has re opened as a Bar/Theater.
The inside has been restored and looks really good. They still play movies but not first run features. They also have live music from time to time.

I have not taken any pictures to post.
