The Rio Theatre For Sale

The Rio Theatre, just west of Commercial on Broadway is being offered for sale as a development site.

This comes as no great surprise, given its location in one of the major development areas identified in the Grandview Woodland Community Plan. It would be great to see the theatre, or something like it, incorporated into whatever is built there in the future.  The Rio has served the neighbourhood since 1938 and, with the massive increase in population density planned for Broadway & Commercial, we need to retain entertainment and similar facilities to service those new residents. After all, Man cannot live by condos alone.

    Thanks for the update. With 10-storey zoning allowed, it will be one heck of an expensive buy.
