Rialto Theater closing in Westfield amid dispute with landlord

Posted: Updated:

The Rialto Theater in Westfield will be closing due to a dispute between the tenant and landlord, Westfield Mayor Shelley Brindle says.

The iconic venue posted a sign Friday that said it's closing its doors. Officials claim they didn't know until Thursday morning that the theater was shutting down.

They tell News 12 they're not giving up yet.

The historic spot has been around since 1922.
