Cerrito Theater Set to Reopen July 15



Following approval of a new lease at Monday's El Cerrito City Council meeting, the Cerrito Theater is set for a July 15 reopening under new operator Rialto Cinemas. The lease has a five-year term and allows Rialto Cinemas to run a restaurant in addition to the theater, just as previous operator Speakeasy Theaters did. Sounds like the Redevelopment Agency's ambitious plan to get a new operator in by mid-July is right on track. For more on how they got this far, see our last post.
