The Rose Theatre was opened on October 12, 1927 with Noah Beery in “The Rough Riders”. It was managed in the early years by Nat Williams. Silent films were accompanied by a five-piece orchestra.
The façade of the Rose Theatre was a three-story affair with a Spanish Tile half-roof. Two large French doors with keystone headers were placed at the second story, and two canopied windows appeared directly above the French doors on the third story.
The Rose Theatre had a balcony and a completely rigged stage with a fly-house.
It was closed in 1971 and is especially tragic that the Rose Theatre fell to the wreckers in February 1973, as Thomasville is a city known internationally for its preservation activities and an award-winning and highly successful Main Street program.
