Jerry Place

Great old theater. Very comfortable. No boorish teenagers staring at their phones. Great place for the over-50 crowd to go see a movie.

Step back in few of these old theaters left. Plush seats, jazzy old music, friendly staff.

Walt Bohn

Larry Hawkins

Vintage feel inside and outside

Gina Barnett

Bill Johnson

A step back in time. Great theater

Gail Sawrie

A theatre that is part of the Kansas City Fine Arts Group. It only has one theatre, so there is typically only one movie showing at this location. It is an older theatre, but that adds to its charm. A number of years ago, it was remodeled in art deco and has wonderful ambiance for independent movies. There are numerous restaurants nearby, which makes dinner and a movie a snap.

Susan Ramirez

An older theatre full of history. If you want the newest concept in movie watching this place is not for you. If you understand and love the history of cinema meet me at the Rio!

A cozy little arthouse theater in Overland Park. They only have one film showing at a time, but they are usually independent or foreign films that you won't be able to find else where. It has retro feel to it. No stadium seating, but the seats are comfortable and there is plenty of space. The concession selection is pretty typical.

Dinner and movie with my oldest son! We love the Rio and the Glenwood Arts theaters. Old theaters with so much personality!

peggy Baker

Always love it there... Like a private showing

Pam Marshall Guise

The Rio is a great little vintage theatre! Just like I went to when I was a kid. One movie. No loud sounds leaking thru the walls like the big multi-plexes. If they're showing a movie I want to see, I'll choose this place!

Joel Watson

Shlomo Vile

Very pleasant and comfortable

TT Tansey

Best old-made-new theatre to see art house and limited release. Nicest people.

Clover Chains

Show was canceled due to inclimate weather but they kept payment.

Linda Hill

Jeff Denny

Love this theater. They show fine arts films. It's not usually packed, so you can enjoy a quiet evening with a good film without fighting a crowd. And you're not likely to have to tell someone to turn off their phone.

Wade Esser

Grazyna Slowik

Great theatre showing first rate movies.

Devin Craft

Love the Rio. It is part of the Fine Arts theatre group with Glenwood Arts theatre. I go to Glenwood more often, but Rio is a fun change of pace when we want to visit downtown Overland Park. Like Glenwood, they run independent movies, Oscar contenders, and documentaries. We most recently saw "The Biggest Little Farm" which I wouldn't have even heard of outside of the Fine Arts theatres. They are great curators of films that are worth seeing! The Rio itself is a fun experience. The ticket booth in the front, the beautiful neon lights on the exterior and in the auditorium, the small lobby and concession stand...It's all very evocative.

Marc Miller

Great 1947 theatre and they show the fantastic art films and films that may not hit the mega movie places. 4.50 for a soda sucked! Otherwise I'll probably go again.

Carol Henderson

Cute, little old-fashioned theater. Has the best movies. Has good snacks including fresh popped popcorn.

Vernon Rourke

Always a good movie& parking

I love the Rio theater. I have been probably seven to ten times. The tickets are very affordable, the food is reasonably priced and tasty. The great thing about this theater is the age and the aesthetic to it. It has one screen, and they only have one movie with different showings. The seats are very comfortable and you can lean pretty far back.

Leonard Dale

Great art deco theater

Gretchen Merdian

Love the old time feel of theatres. Always a good reminiscent times gone by. Love it here.

Rio Theater in Overland Park KS is a step back in time. It's Art Deco styling and simple elegance really set the mood. Once the movie begins you'll enjoy good quality sound and a crisp screen. I hope I get a chance to go back to Overland Park so I can go to Rio Theater again!

William Akers

It is a small theater. With a small screen. It very enjoyable experience.

Love this theater. Hopefully this historic place will not go way of the rest of downtown Overland Park.

Wanda Otto

This is my favorite movie theater in the Kansas City area. They definitely have the best popcorn and the movie choices are always the type of movie I like.

Michael Carlisle III

Steve Wilks

First time to the Rio was wonderful. Beautiful art deco interior brings you back to the movie theaters of our youth. Very friendly staff and better prices than the megaplexes. Well travel a little further to support this independent.

Lovely little 1940s movie theater with original walls and snack bar, and its neon tropical decor makes it all the more fun. Happily, the seats are up to date and very comfortable.

Erica Perez

This is the coolest theater I've ever been in and has the friendliest staff!

I loved this place for a unique movie experience. After the movie, head over to Homer's for some great coffee and local talent.

Like going to the movie theatre 30 years ago. Theatre is first class and seats are comfy.

Fowler Jones

Vintage art house neighborhood treasure.

Derek Lott

Love this place so much. Sitting in the theatre throws you right back to the 50s, and instead of a physical play, you get a movie. Awesome atmosphere

Tony Maden

The iconic Rio Theatre in downtown Overland Park reminds me of the movie The Majestic, old style ticket booth and concessions stand, great service, great popcorn, and comfy seating with one movie playing at a time. No sound bleed through from adjacent movies.

Dan Smith

The Rio is a great little one screen theatre. I believe the beautiful old building was built in the 1940's, it's had some renovations done but most of the charm from the 40's is still present. Typically not huge crowds and easy to find a comfortable seat.

Pauline Shadden

Jeffrey Sterling

Interesting and historic movie theater originally built in 1946. A single screen it has good prices and comfortable seats although of course it's original so it's not the modern seats.

Lyle Williams

Great theater!
