Why would anyone spend $8 to watch a movie? With endless videos to be streamed from Netflix, $1 venues such as Redbox and massive home 3D entertainment systems that parallel that of the big screen itself, there seems to be virtually no reason to part...More

We love the Rose. Although it's a 40 min drive away, we often make the trip because we enjoy the film selection, the complete lack of ads prior to the films, the personal introduction to the films and the whole atmosphere of the Rose and...More

It is a 2-screen venue with a small number of seats and historic flavor. That and the best popcorn (with great seasonings) make it a unique experience. Quite different from the multi-screen monstrosities in most malls. Here you get local snacks, healthy drinks (herb teas,...More

Thanks for visiting, Hank! Next time you visit, we bet you'll love our third screen upstairs--the Starlight Room. It's got the yummy popcorn and a full menu. See you soon!

We go here all the time. It’s fun, the movies are always excellent and the staff is fantastic. It has all the latest indie films along with the current hits.
