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.

The partnership of Winkes and Suckstoff had recently sold the Rose Theatre at Glendive, Montana, to Jack Gavan, according to an item in the “Theatre Changes” column of the July 15, 1929, issue of The Film Daily.

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:
