Reverse side of a postcard in the Morgan family collection.
This is an one cent postcard advertisement which was delivered to Sumas, WA residents. This card lists the movies scheduled to show during the month of June, 1946. At this time the theater was owned by Bruno Hollenbeck, however notice that the postcard states that the Rose Theater is operated by the Sumas Lion's Club as a community project. I think this needs some more research to determine what role the Sumas Lion's Club had in the theater operation.
According to a discussion with Rebecca (Beane) Miesuk she remembered going to the theater in the early 1960s and seeing "Gone with the Wind" when they revived it. Does anyone else have any memories of attending the Rose Theater? What was your favorite show? Please share!
