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!

A step back in time. Comfy seats. A theatre employee comes to the front to tell you about the movie. Very neat!

Beautiful historic theatre staffed by people that care.

Saw " TheButler" there last week. Had the popcorn with yeast (yes, yeast!)..(.they have 5-10 toppings forpopcorn and they are tasty!). Film was intorduced by a staff membr that clearly knew her stuff, and made the experience all the more enjoyable.

DO visit Rose is you visit PT!

Locally owned and run and not part of a chain, they are able to choose their own films and they select the best. I saw "The Butler," which is a must to see. How nice that someone came to tell a little bit about the background of the film before it started! This theatre brings the magic back to going to the movies.

Good theatre, OK seats, popcorn with real butter instead of that oil glop you get a chain theatres. Jolly good, all in all.

Seeing a film at the Rose is like stepping into a time warp, like nothing I've ever experienced. The charming digital offerings on two screens include first run features as well as late night single showings of classics. The Rose also shows HD opera and HDLive theatre performances. The films are introduced by staff and often include insights and information relevant to local Port Townsend artists and authors.
