Motion picture cinema was created to captivate the imaginations of pedestrians who tried and failed to imagine 40-foot-tall people in 2D. Feel miniature compared to Hollywood's biggest stars with today's Groupon: for $9, you get two movie tickets at Rosebud Cinema in Wauwatosa (up to an $18 value).

A renovation of the Tosa Theater built in 1931, Rosebud Cinema's vintage edifice hosts a single screen in a 180-guest movie house that's stocked with comfy plush love seats, making an ideal for both romantic twosomes and platonic partners. Blockbusters and art-house films entertain children and seniors ($7 tickets), adults ($9 tickets), and matinee crowds ($5 tickets before 5 p.m.) with a full schedule of anticipated cinematic releases, including the upcoming movie The Green Hornet , which features actor Seth Rogan warding off swarms of green, computer-generated John Goodmans in spandex bug suits.

Reviews

CityVoters named Rosebud Cinema Second-Best Indie Theatre in 2010. The cinema was featured in Shepherd Express, and ten Yelpers give it a 4.5-star average.

  • The Rosebud, with its old-school quaintness and charm, is known as a perfect date-night spot. – Jenna Kashou, Shepherd Express
  • Great atmosphere, very clean…The sofas are comfortable and give an air or romanticism. – Elizabeth R., Yelp

Rosebud Theater

Going to the movie theater should be more enjoyable than watching a movie at home––a concept that Rosebud Theater has down pat. Cinephiles regain the sparkle in their eyes as they enter the historic venue, which originally opened as The Tosa Theatre in 1931 and was recently modernized to have great views and stellar sound. Unlike cramped multiplex theaters, Rosebud houses one solitary, comfortably spaced theater, where visitors won’t have to worry about hearing explosions from the monster-truck movie next door or accidently walking into the wrong monster-truck movie.

In addition to typical movie snacks such as popcorn, candy, and soda, the Rosebud sports a full menu of appetizers, sandwiches, quesadillas, and pizza, as well as a full bar stocked with wine, cocktails, and microbrews––all of which are delivered to patrons during featured presentations. Rather than standard chairs, the theater is furnished with cushy loveseats with room for 180 movie lovers to savor first-run Hollywood hits without wrestling strangers over armrests.
