The Teatro Rialto was built between 1926 and 1930, by architects José de Aragón and José María Mendoza Ussía and founded by Antonio Ramos Espejo in 1930 as the Rialto Cinema (between 1932 and 1934 it was called Cine Astoria) and is located at number 54 of the Gran Vía in Madrid.
The first picture released was Variedades from Paramount and it had the honour of hosting the opening night release for El último cuplé, featuring the late Sara Montiel, motion picture that would shatter all records at the time, transforming The Teatro Rialto cinema into a reference point in the Gran Vía. This movie theatre would also play American musical comedies, foreseeing its future as a venue for major musical theatre productions. In fact, its first release just after its transformation into a Theatrical venue, was the Spanish musical Hoy No Me Puedo Levantar, a major hit and still to date the most successful Spanish Musical play ever.
Since such a promising start, the venue has homed a plethora of Major shows, such as Enamorados anónimos, 40 El Musical, Cabaret and most recently 2 seasons of Nada es Imposible by Antonio Díaz, EL Mago Pop (Europe´s best illusionist).
The Teatro Rialto has also hosted non musical plays such as Sé infiel y no mires con quién, Buena Gente y La función que sale mal while at the same time positioning itself as a reference space for live music. In the 2021-22 season, the Teatro Rialto has hosted “Sombras” by Sara Baras, “Full Monty El Musical”, “Antoine” and “Los Morancos”. At the end of the year, in October, a new production of Mamma Mia will be released.
Teatro Rialto has a large stage, a seating capacity of more than 1.000 seats, rehearsal room and a cafeteria. It has all the necessary access facilities so that anyone can enjoy our space such as stairlifts and direct access ramps.
