This theater consistently has films that intelligent people love! Need I say more? the people who run this are also involved with the Port Townsend Film festival.

Nicely restored, modernized theater that shows recently “past run” films. We saw two shows on two different nights. Neither show was crowded but both fairly well attended. They started each show with a bit of information about each film and that was both interesting and...More

The Rose Theatre shows current films as well as some old classics. Someone discusses the movie prior to show time and they have great popcorn.

I can't believe I haven't written a review for this iconic place. They have the old Art Deco decor, popcorn with real butter, and someone that reads an entertaining preview before the show...what's not to love?! My fav is the Starlight room, where you can...More

My husband and I have been to the Rose Theatre a few times. It's pretty old and the seats are, too. It has a lot of charm. There is an old rolled shade that has a bunch of ads from long ago businesses printed on...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
