Accessibility info: (taken directly from the Rio's about page, http://riotheatre.ca/about/)
Built in 1938 the entrance, main floor, lobby & auditorium of the Rio Theatre are all accessible, for all types of wheelchairs and scooters. The two main aisles between the main seating area are over 4 ft across. We removed 8 fixed seats in back left corner of the seating area creating a 7ft x 8ft area which provides several wheelchair/scooter spaces. Plus we removed 23 fixed seats in the front row to create front row access for wheelchairs/ scooters.
We also made changes to the women’s washroom to make it more accessible. The women’s washroom has one stall that has been adapted with an accessibility bar and a wider 32″ door, but at this time scooters and wheel chairs are not accessible in either bathroom because the turn radius to enter the bathrooms are too tight. The men’s washroom is very small so we were not able to install a wider door. However there is accessible washrooms available to use at Broadway Station Sushi restaurant 2 doors west of our building.
