The Rialto Theatre: Rocking Revitalization

Julie Ragland, Development Director at the Rialto Theatre in Tucson, joined Karla on this week’s Thrive Tucson. As a downtown fixture, the Rialto staged an impressive comeback after almost being demolished in 1984 and now is on pace to celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2020. Julie discusses the history of the Rialto, upcoming renovations, and what it’s like to work in the nonprofit world.
