Antiquarian booksellers are part scholar, part detective and part businessperson, and their personalities and knowledge are as broad as the material they handle. They also play an underappreciated yet essential role in preserving history. THE BOOKSELLERS takes viewers inside their small but fascinating world, populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics and dreamers. NR, 99 min.

To Our Rose Family: Out of deep concern for the health of our community, we are closing the Rose Theatre and the Starlight Room beginning Monday, March 16th.
Given the recommendations from the World Health Organization, Washington State health officials and actions taken by Governor Jay Inslee, we believe this is the most responsible choice in an attempt to "flatten the curve" and keep our local health care providers from becoming overwhelmed.
This decision was the most challenging one I have ever faced in regards to the Rose. It was made after consultation with the Jefferson County Health Department, the Rose and Starlight managers, the Rose board of directors, and with the Silverwater Cafe, co-owners of the Starlight Room.
The financial implications of this decision to our staff and all other small businesses associated with the Rose and Starlight Room are significant. But the decision to close our venues was the only choice for us.
If you are looking for ways to continue to support our Port Townsend economy during this challenging time, please consider purchasing a gift card from a local restaurant or shop for future use. On Taylor street alone, Honazono, Lehani's, The Tin Brick and the Silverwater Cafe are offering wonderful take-out choices. One way to assist the Rose today is to become a member (click Membership in the menu above) or purchase a gift membership (click Shop in the menu above) for a friend. Our members receive wonderful discounts and benefits throughout the year - like free weekly popcorn - and are the lifeblood of the theatre.
If you have purchased a ticket to an upcoming film, opera or play, we will be happy to provide a refund. Just call or email us at (360) 385.1039 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are deeply grateful for your ongoing support. Stay healthy, take care of your loved ones, and we hope to see you at the movies soon. --Rocky
