As noted above, the theater’s address needs to be updated. This page shows some connection between a bowling alley on W. Towne and the theater on N. Merrill:

The former Rose Theatre is no longer a movie house, but a live performance venue called the Retro Theatre. This brief item about the conversion, posted on the web site of the Glendive Ranger-Review, is dated July 10, 2014, and says that the theater was built in 1918. The conversion project included uncovering the upper part of the building’s original facade.
