Review of Rose Theatre

Rose Theatre

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: A historic cinema in downtown Port Townsend, with the best in current film, cult flicks and classics. The auditorium and facade feature gorgeous details from the Rose's day as a vaudeville house, dating back to 1907. With delicious popcorn, plus beer and wine and and a beautiful collection of film photos, the Rose is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. Like no other small town theatre you've seen. Worth a visit even if you're not going to a movie!

“Homey Theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

The movie we saw wasn't the best but we loved the theater. A lady gave us a presentation of the movie as well as background on the producer and the story behind the movie. It felt very homey. The popcorn was not worth the buy, however.

“Deco delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

This theater has been lovingly restored, and is a joy to frequent. Not only is the movie selection exceptionally eclectic, but the choice of edibles is not to be missed. Don't pass up the popcorn - fresh, fragrant, dripping with real butter. The perfect pairing for a good movie.

“charmingly old-fashioned”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

This little theatre has 2 screens! The place shows unusual first run & other-wise and the setting is positively intimate. Each show is personally introduced! How often does that happen in a mega-plex?

“I love this theater!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

Two small(ish) screens in this theater allow for first run films. Recently updated to digital, the smallness adds to the experience of good movie watching. Staff begin the movie by reminding us to be polite, be quiet and pick up the trash. They also give a few details about the film - quaint! I love this theater!

So quaint, so old time, but excellent picture and sound quality. And, the BEST popcorn in any movie theatre anywhere!
