Classic Monster Movies at the Rosendale Theater

Rosendale Theater runs a series of vintage monster movies.

The Rosendale Theater in Rosendale, NY (Ulster County) is a three-story, 260-seat movie theater and performance center that opened as a casino in 1905 and began showing films in 1920s.

A stage was installed in the 1930s and the venue began showing live vaudeville and burlesque acts, and was once home to the city’s fire department. Anthony Cacchio Sr. rented the building in 1949 and converted it into a movie theater, showing around 300 films a year. After more than 60 years in business, the Cacchio family decided to sell and ownership of the venue was transferred to a non-profit organization, the Rosendale Theater Collective in 2010.
