Re: “SB 1070 Fallout: Cypress Hill Cancels Rialto Show

Its obvious that Doug and his people at the Rialto are in way over their head. Curtis who is running things at the Rialto has no venue management experience. Its obvious the Rialto isnt making any money. Again this goes back to lack of experience on the Rialtos part. They are paying way too much for shows. Charging too much for tickets and the basic costs to put on a show are too high.

The Rio Nuevo Board had better get Doug and his inexperienced staff out of there before they completely run the place in the ground. Every month they are just piling on the debt. The hole gets bigger and bigger. Non-profit doesnt mean lose money.

If the Rialto was making enough money every month to pay the rent or re-invest that money as a credit back into the theatre the Rio Nuevo board wouldnt be coming down on them.

Jim this should answer your question why the Rio Nuevo Board is putting so much effort into going after the Rialto. ITS NOT SUCCESSFUL! Thats the bottom line.

Doug Biggers made alot of promises and commitments when he took over the Rialto. He needs to admit that he hasnt been able to honor by his end of the deal and get out of there!!

Now this $300,000 sound system you speak of. Where is the rest of it? The PA thats its in the Rialto is a 1/3 of that! AT MOST!!
