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.

Went to see "Wild" at the Rose Theatre while visiting Port Townsend over New Years. The theatre is small, and though it was packed, a very nice place to watch a movie. Before they start the feature, an employee comes to the front of the theatre and gives sort of a "review" of the actors, director, etc A little back... More

We saw a great movie on a comfortable sofa with great food cooked on site ... a lovely way to spend a wet evening in Port Townsend. there are other screens in the theatre and we found this one only because of the film we chose.

Anyone who lives in or around Port Townsend, no matter what they think of the town in general, will have reason to sing the praises of the Rose Theatre. In fact the Rose is one of the town's biggest draws. It's normal that the Rose features new releases, and often releases that are simply unavailable elsewhere ...you know the artsy-fartsy... More

My second time at the Rose while on a mini-vacation. It has a nice arthouse vibe, and so many locals go to the small theaters that it's like seeing a movie with a bunch of friends. Sound system is quite good and it's clean. Caveat - no one with mobility problems should go here - it's historic and that means... More

A trip to The Rose is always a great experience. This small theater, with two screens in the main building and a small intimate, living room style screen in the building next door never disappoints. From the well curated selection of movies from block buster to small unheard of independent films to the personal announcements at the beginning of each... More

Wwe decided to see a movie at the Rose Theatre, after hearing about it from friends. We made online reservations for a Saturday matinee. We arrived about 30 minutes early for the show, and were glad we did. Parking is hard to find in PT, and the line for tickets was long. You have to stand in line to retrieve... More

Great theatre to see a new film ... Or a classic. The kind of local landmark that should be supported and enjoyed. Great popcorn.

The personal touch of the employee talking about the movie before it begins and the Starlight Room upstairs with wine and food choices other than popcorn.
