The Rosebud closed for good this past Saturday, May 8. It lasted a little over 1 year. Alfred Hitchcock’s “Secret Agent” was it’s last film. The theatre was smallish, about 90 theatre seats, on a flat floor. The films were shown on a Epson projector onto a screen about 8 feet long by about 5 feet wide. The theatre’s closing was simply – money. Not enough people attended to keep the theatre open and viable. Which, unfortunately, goes to show that unless the theatre is in NYC, showing older films exclusively on a semi-daily basis is financial suicide.

So sorry to hear this! It was a great alternative to the mall theaters especially because they featured “classic” films. Wishing the manager (and his daughter-in-law who helped run the establishment, I believe) well! I hope they find another, more lucrative way of bringing classic films to the masses who cannot always get to the Film Forum or the IFC center in New York.

This was a nice theater. Very friendly owner good snacks as well. I wish they had made the screen bigger than it was. I don’t think it would’ve affected the projection if the screen was bigger from the projector they were using. People complained because they charged $10. Still worth it I thought to go out the house to see classic films in a nice comfortable setting. People don’t understand the costs of showing these classic films and the upkeep of the entire theater

I never took the opportunity to visit the Rosebud and I’m very sorry for my neglect. I think the optimum phrase here is “to go out”, no matter what the screen size. In the past I often visited the “Film Forum” on Houston Street in NYC, whose screens are quite small but the enjoyment of their films was never effected by the size of their screens.

I remember seeing “Gone With the Wind” at this theater in March 1984 (it originally opened in the 80’s).

I wonder what this theater building is currently being used for? Perhaps a new “classic” theater might appear someday!
