A PDF available from the web site of St.Paul architectural firm Vanney Associates lists 25 theater projects designed by Robert F. Vanney, including the 8-screen Rosemount Theatre.

Its largest auditorium has a capacity of almost 300. Its smallest has just over 100 seats. Dolby Digital & DTS when I worked there, though DTS was only present in the large auditorium. Rosemount’s stadium retrofit features a more gradual slope than neighboring theatres, as it was originally a traditional multiplex. Before its 2003 remodel, a lighted chandelier hung from the center of the lobby & a fountain sat opposite the concession stand. Bathrooms were larger than any multiplex nearby. Auditoria have curtain-padded walls with blue, red & green colors in different auditoria.

Rosemount features Christie Projectors & platters. Some screens are not correctly proportioned for the cinemascope aspect & suffer from image bleed onto the walls. GTI opened this location in 1993 & like Shakopee & Apple Valley, intended this to be a lobby-run theatre, with endless loop platters & automation controls behind the concession stand. In 2002, the ELF’s were converted to conventional platters & lobby operation discontinued, thankfully.
