Movie Night in Roslyn

Wondering what to do on a January Saturday night in Kittitas county? The holiday are over and you maybe a bit partied out. That is ok, there is a lot of great things to do in Kittitas County.  This is the time of year I like to catch a movie. If you are in the Upper County (West of Throp) then you will want to check out the Roslyn Theater.

This historic icon is located at 101 Dakota Street in Roslyn. Jan Donaldson was the one who saw the vision and need and created a very cozy and intimate movie theatre. It became an instant success to the residents of the town of Roslyn, Washington.  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. It recently went through some much needed renovations. The owner did not have the funds to convert to digital media and the community rallied and did a fundraiser to save the theater. This amazing little place has been around for almost 40 years. If you get the opportunity to visit it, purchase the balcony tickets and you must add the yeast to your popcorn. Currently The Mule, starting Clint Eastwood is playing.
