Movies return to Bastrop this spring as the Rose Theatre is set to become the second single-screen theater in northeastern Louisiana to return to her roots in motion pictures.

"The Rose Theatre is thrilled to offer this new entertainment option as we strive to fulfill our mission in the community," Sara Holley, vice president of the Cotton Country Players, said. "We are thankful for the support of devoted actors and volunteers, generous patrons and cooperative business and civic partners — all of whom play a crucial role in keeping this treasure alive in Morehouse Parish. Now, we are looking forward to complementing our current line-up of live entertainment with some of the best pictures ever to hit the silver screen."

The Rose was built in 1927 by the Goodwin family of Bastrop. It stopped showing movies in the mid-1970s.

Beginning in March, the Cotton Country Players, which now owns and operates the Rose as a Non-Profit 501-C3 organization, will begin showing movies under the direction of Adam Holland of Holland Entertainment LLC of Oak Grove.

April 19 “Gone with the Wind”
