Originally opened in 1907, and now beautifully restored, this old theatre is now running art house movies and fully updated with Dolby Digital sound.

The Rose Theatre is on a side street and a little hard to find, but what a gem!

The Rose Theatre opened in 1907 on Water Street. In December 1908 the Rose moved to its current location on Taylor Street. The Rose operated for more than fifty years before it closed its doors November 8, 1958 with the potboiler, High School Confidential. The Rose Theatre re-opened July 11, 1992 and remains open today.

My family & I visited Port Townsend and the the Rose Theater last week and saw Hairspray (2007 version). What a find! The theatre is beautifully restored and the sound (Dolby Digital) and picture were fantastic. Much better than our new, local Cinemark at home in Texas. The movie was introduced by a staff member and the whole experience was perfect. If you’re in the area, I highly recommend checking this one out.
