Rialto Update: When They Kick Out Your Front Door, How You Gonna Come?

Posted By on Wed, Jul 15, 2009 at 1:14 PM

The fight between the Rialto Theatre Foundation and Don Martin and Scott Stiteler, the owners of downtown's Rialto block, is slipping closer to the brink. Martin and Stiteler have filed papers in Pima County Superior Court to evict the foundation from its green room, offices and storage space.

The theatre itself, which is owned by the city and leased to the foundation, will remain open, so go ahead and buy those Snoop Dog tickets.

My friend Doug Biggers, the Rialto Theatre Foundation's exec director, tells us a court hearing on the eviction matter is imminent.

As tensions rise, high-level talks between the developers, the foundation's board and the city and downtown bigwigs are continuing with an effort to work out a deal that avoids both eviction and condemnation.

Background on the entire affair here and here.
