Burnham on Crouch has been lucky enough to have a cinema in town since 1910.
In 1979 the cinema was bought by a leisure group which also owns the Star Inn and has been refurbished to give one large auditorium and a smaller second screen.
The Rio is still open today showing the latest films.
This web site does not list films being shown at the Rio although you can find them by
