Roslyn Theatre

The building was used as a mortuary & funeral home from 1903 to 1972. It was converted into the Roslyn Theatre, which opened on June 9, 1977 with Warren Beatty in “Heaven Can Wait”. The theatre continues to be family owned and run by Courtney Cooper Neese and Joe Neese and their children. The theatre plays a combination of first run movies and classics in addition to hosting community events and supporting many fundraising efforts by the community.

The Roslyn Theatre was originally a mortuary that went out of business over 20 years ago. It was purchased at that time by Jan Donaldson, who converted the building into a very cozy and intimate movie theatre. It became an instant success to the residents of the very small countryfied town of Roslyn, Washington.(This is the same town that was used for the old TV series of NORTHERN EXPOSURE). Ms. Donaldson and her family members continue to operate this theatre, to this day. It continues to play first run films, as it always has. No sub-runs for this house!!! The seating capacity is just about 100 or less with some love seat seating available. It advertises that it is the only theatre to allow patrons to bring their dogs to the theatre with them. The continued success of this theatre, by far, has to be the wonderful, warm and friendly family, and of course, Jan that make every visit to this theatre the place to go!!
