Rose Theatre

The Rose Theatre opened in 1924. It was rebuilt in 1940 to the plans of owner/architect F.R. Thompson with seating listed at 358. During the mid-1990’s it was operated by Associated Theatres. This is another theatre that has a video store in the lobby. It was closed for renovation in March 2016.

Do you have any information on who owned the theatre in the 1920’s. I think it was my mother-in-law.

An article in the August 17, 1940, issue of Boxoffice has a paragraph mentioning the Rose Theatre and its owner-operator, F.R. Thompson. Mr. Thompson was celebrating his 59th birthday and had recently completed construction of a new house for himself and his wife. Quoth Boxoffice writer Rene Clayton: “Mr. Thompson, who is a very fine architect if we are to judge by the Rose which he designed and built practically single-handed, designed and built the new Thompson home as well.”
