The Rose Theater is truly the gem of Forsyth, GA. Located right on the courthouse square, it is Forsyth’s one and only old theater. It is very small, with little ornamentation. In the 70’s, the roof was torn off to make an open-air bar, thus destroying any ornamentation that was there.
Now, the Backlot Players (a non-Profit community theater group owns it). My grandmother went to the local high school and can remember going to movies there when she was young. It is currently in a state of restoration, with a temporary stage and fold-up chairs in the audience, but donations are flowing in and we will soon carry out what we call “Phase II” of the restoration. This will include a real stage, dressing rooms, and seating. We are very proud to have the Rose in our town and hope to see it there forever.
