The Rio Theater, which appears in the form of a gigantic Quonset hut along Sonoma County’s winding Highway 116, has an Art Deco façade and a mural depicting the nearby Pacific, including forest and whales. The theater shows one movie per day from Friday through Sunday, and screens near-first run movies. Don’s Dogs Café, which operates from the deck behind the theater, specializes in hot dogs and sandwiches, including grilled Louisiana hot links, a griddled shrimp burger, and an intimidating “cardiac” burger that combines a hamburger, a sausage patty, and cheese.
If the naturalist mural isn’t enough, Rio Theater is just down Bohemian Highway from Sonoma Coast State Beach, which is actually where the trees meet the Pacific.
