  • 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...  more »
  • comfy chairs, serves wine and food - popcorn served in wooden bowls made fresh great room with a view of town  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 monstrosit...  more »

  • The Rose is the quaintest movie house in the Pacific Northwest! Rocky (owner/operator) selects fabulous movies which please the populace of Port Townsend. AND the popcorn is the best you've ever had!
  • Awesome small movie house with different theatre options. The Starlight room is for the 21 and over crowd but any other can be accessed by anyone. Mostly, I've seen small independent films and the Sundance film festival type of Indy films which arr my fave. The popcorn is organic and so is the butter. And they don't gouge u for it! O find it cheaper than most commercial movie houses. And they talk to u before the movie filling u in on the makers, actors etc. as well as rhe other films there. A joyful place.
  • What a hidden treasure! On our first day in Port Townsend we arrived at this odd time of day where you're kind of at loose ends for a few hours. We happened to walk by the theater (which happened to be playing The Book Club) and decided to go in. Wow. What a great experience. First the theater itself is great, and then this young lady walks in and introduces the movie. She spent 5-6 minutes basically setting the movie up, etc. It was very well done, with humor and wit. If we could have worked it into our trip we would have gone back every evening to watch another movie.
  • Great location featuring both large budget Hollywood films and excellent art house cinema. They also do throwback showings of old classics. The Rose sports two screens on the first level one larger (The Rose itself) and one more intimate, but a bit smaller (The Rosebud). Though upstairs they have the newest edition The Starlight Room, which is really the crown jewel. The Starlight has a more comfortable seating arrangment in the form of couches and tables, and also serves a full bar selection and a pretty solid food menu. All in all this is a wonderful place to view film of either major producers or smaller independent ones. Very enjoyable experience in a clean environment with a friendly staff. A must whether visiting or local.
  • Great movie theater, comfy seats that aren't too expensive. Awesome popcorn seasoning and they serve beer' wine and cider. My only problem is you have to get your (alcoholic) drinks in the first 30 minutes after the movie starts. . .
