The Rose Theatre was next to Affleck Druggist and Ice Cream Soda Shop in the 1916 Bldg on Johnson Ave. of Orofino. From looking at old maps of business locations at the Clearwater Historical Museum, it does not appear that the theatre was in business very many years. This photos (courtesy of Clearwater Historical Museum) is ca. 1917.
When the photo is enlarged, it can be seen that the movie poster on the right of the building is advertising a movie called "A Girl of the Timber Claims" with the actress Constance Talmadge.
