The Rose Theatre, along with the smaller Rosebud and the even small Starlight Room, are fabulous venues. Rocky, the owner/director/manager, chooses wonderful films of all types. Besides that, he is very supportive of community events and organizations, and often presents films as part of fundraising efforts. Wonderful!

This is the best movie venue you'll ever attend. Gorgeous restored to the last detail, it will spoil you for all others. After you enjoy dousing your popcorn with real butter and diverse spices (real parmesan cheese, eg.), proceed to the comfy seats in a quiet theater. Each film is thoughtfully introduced by a lovely staff member with insights gleaned... More

If you want to see great film, curated by talented owner and staff - this is your theater. Great food and beverage, comfortable, artsy, and smart. Don't necessarily expect to see the mainstream blockbusters...this theater plays to film that has meaning and is harder to find.

What a great place to enjoy a movie. The theater was a vintage delight - tastefully restored and cozy as well. There should be more like this.

Rocky, the owner, brought this theater back to it's glory days. There's the Rose and then he added the Rosebud, a smaller theater, so you can choose from 2 movies at once. The movies are always well selected, the theater clean and comfortable and a live intro is given, Rocky also started the Port Townsend Film Festival which occurs in... More

Movie going as it should be. From the friendly and knowledgeable introduction to the film being shown, to the friendly staff. First rate selections.

This Victorian theater shows current movies as well as old movies and independent films. Popcorn with real butter is served and various toppings are available. There are three theaters and in one, patrons can order from the restaurant next door and their meal or snacks will be delivered. Amazing experience. I wish this theater was in my home town.

A relaxed third floor now offers couches, an extended food and bar menu. Popcorn is served in a bowl. The movie as mentioned still has a person adding info about the film. Our ticket stub gave us a chance for a drawing. A book by the author and character in the film. For a few more dollars you can move... More

So there I was, sitting in the theater, after the trailers, and all of a sudden there's a real live human being in front of the auditorium. And she starts talking to us about the movie, giving this a little bit of background. I don't remember if it was about the movie itself, or the actors, or the story that... More

We loved the ambience of the Rose Theatre. Great lobby, concession stand and the employees obviously love working at the theatre. One of my favorite theaters of all time.
