Rose Theatre

On the Waterfront

Classics Night at the Starlight: I first saw On the Waterfront at the Rose Bud Movie Palace on Third Avenue in Pioneer Square in the mid-70s. Palace was hardly an apt description for this small, bare bones cinema, but it didn't matter to me.

It was my church and a small slice of heaven. Beholding Brando in all his raw magnetism was a revelation for this kid from the Bellevue suburb, and it cemented my love of movies.  I have never grown tired of director Elia Kazan's masterpiece, and playing it in the Starlight Room next Wednesday night feels like a return to that very first experience.
