March 7, 2015 Public Investigation of the Rialto

Tonight was TIP’s inaugural public investigation of the beautiful Rialto. Lead investigators Paul and Christine along with investigators Lesley, Stew, and Craig represented TIP this evening. We were joined by a sold out crowd of 24 guests for an evening of ghost hunting. The guests ranged from novice to experienced ghost hunters. After a brief talk by Rialto staff on logistics we gave the crowd a talk on how to ghost hunt and how the evening would go. EMF detectors and thermal guns were available for guests to check out and use. We also had four infrared night vision cameras set up to give the guests a chance to see what watching the monitors looks like. The guests were divided up, and led by our investigators, went to assigned areas to conduct investigations. The guest investigators took pictures, ran EMF sweeps, and set our recorders and KII devices just like real ghost hunters do.   Each group then conducted an EVP session in their area. The group with Paul was in the Star Room and had a few admitted skeptics. However, during the EVP session two of the most skeptical members suddenly smelled a strong scent of a floral perfume. The spirit that supposedly occupies the Star Room is Vivian, a former performer that is associated with the color and scent of lavender. Neither of the people that smelled it could explain. Unfortunately, the rest of the evening was quiet. We conducted a ghost box session in the auditorium to end the evening but did not get any correct responses to our questions. TIP review of the audio and video evidence did not yield any additional evidence of the paranormal.

May 23, 2015 Public Investigation of the Rialto

On the eve of the 89th birthday of the Rialto TIP investigators led our third investigation of the Rialto this year.  Investigators Paul Stew, Amara, and Craig represented TIP this evening. We were joined by a sold out crowd of 24 guests for an evening of ghost hunting. The guests again ranged from novice to experienced ghost hunters. After a brief talk by Rialto staff on logistics we gave the crowd a talk on how to ghost hunt and how the evening would go. EMF detectors and thermal guns were available for guests to check out and use. We also had four infrared night vision cameras set up to give the guests a chance to see what watching the monitors looks like. The guests were divided up, and led by our investigators, went to assigned areas to conduct investigations. The guest investigators took pictures, ran EMF sweeps, and set out recorders and KII devices just like real ghost hunters do. Before the investigation rotation began guests experienced the emf detectors going off in one particular section of seats to stage right.  The emf detectors went off for 10 to 15 minutes and then stopped as abruptly as they began.  During the investigation other guests experienced emf detectors going off in the men's room/coat room area.  The emf meters acted like something moved from the men's room to the woman's restroom next door.  Other guests reported the smell of perfume on the stage.  We conducted a ghost box session in the auditorium to end the evening and got a few responses that seemed responsive to our questions.  The most interesting being the reply twice of "good bye" when we told the spirits we were leaving.  TIP review of the audio and video evidence did not yield any additional evidence of the paranormal


July 24, 2015 Public Investigation of the Rialto

TIP found out what it is like to investigate in a sauna this night.  The Rialto had shampooed their carpets that day and it was extremely hot outside.  The Rialto does not run its air conditioning for ghost hunts so the theatre felt like a Louisanna swamp in July.  However no matter what the conditions the ghost hunt must go on.  Lead investigators Paul and Christine along with investigators Stew and Lesley represented TIP this evening. We were joined by a sold out crowd of 24 guests for an evening of ghost hunting. The guests again ranged from novice to experienced ghost hunters. After a brief talk by Rialto staff on logistics we gave the crowd a talk on how to ghost hunt and how the evening would go. EMF detectors and thermal guns were available for guests to check out and use. We also had four infrared night vision cameras set up to give the guests a chance to see what watching the monitors looks like.  Similar to the previous month's investigation the seats stage right continued to give off EMF hits for no reason.  The guests were divided up and led by Rialto staff rotated between different areas to conduct investigations with a TIP investigator in each area. The guest investigators took pictures, ran EMF sweeps, and set our recorders and KII devices just like ghost hunters do.  The guests enjoyed the evening but it was overall quiet.  We conducted a ghost box session in the auditorium to end the evening but did not get any correct responses to our questions. TIP review of the audio and video evidence did not yield any additional evidence of the paranormal.


August 22, 2015 Public Investigation of the Rialto

TIP investigators led our fifth public investigation of the Rialto this summer. Investigators Paul, Stew, Amara, and Lesley represented TIP this evening.  The theatre was not as hot as on the previous investigation but was still warm.  We were joined by a sold out crowd of 24 guests for an evening of ghost hunting. The guests again ranged from novice to experienced ghost hunters. After a brief talk by Rialto staff on logistics we gave the crowd a talk on how to ghost hunt and how the evening would go. EMF detectors and thermal guns were available for guests to check out and use. We also had four infrared night vision cameras set up to give the guests a chance to see what watching the monitors looks like. The guests were divided up and like the previous investigation were led from spot to spot by Rialto staff.  Each location had a TIP investigator to lead the investigation.  The guest investigators took pictures, ran EMF sweeps, and set our recorders and KII devices just like ghost hunters do. Each group then conducted an EVP session in their area. The seats stage right continued to give off high EMF readings during the night but there were no reasons for it.  One guest conducted an EVP session in the seats and got an amazing response. Though there were no children there that night he recorded a child's laughter and a child's voice making circus music sounds.  This EVP is posted below.  The rest of the evening was quiet and the ghost box session did not yield anything. TIP review of the audio and video evidence did not yield any additional evidence of the paranormal.

At approximately 20 seconds into the clip you can hear a child's laughter but no child was there that night.  At about 31 seconds you hear a voice making circus music.
