At the movies For those looking to take in a movie, Port Townsend has amazing options for the film buff of the family. The Rose Theatre, on Taylor Street, presents both current and classic films on a rotating basis. The theater opened as a vaudeville house in 1907. It has since experienced multiple transitions in order to get to where it is today. Grab some popcorn and a beer, and sit back for a one-of-a-kind movie experience. The Starlight Room, which offers food and cocktails by the Silverwater Cafe with films curated by the Rose Theatre, is a 21 and older venue. In the main room, you’ll be treated to a stunning view of downtown Port Townsend

and Admiralty Inlet, plus cozy chairs and loveseats for eating and watching the movie. For information, visit rosetheatre.com. The Uptown Theatre, on Lawrence Street, is celebrating 70 years of business this year. The one-screen theater often shows a current movie, and viewers can enjoy coffee, tea, hot chocolate, fresh baked cookies and, of course, popcorn from the Uptown Coffee Bar. Bring the whole family, or take in a date night along with all the city has to offer. Visit ptuptowntheatre.com.
