According to the Swan Drive-In website, which goes into much greater detail on the history of this landmark, Jack Jones, Sr.,  and W. H. Tilley, Jr. built the Rialto in 1955 to accommodate ever-growing crowds of moviegoers in Blue Ridge. It’s still open after all these years and remains a popular destination. It’s one of just four remaining drive-in theatres in Georgia.
