Mission Statement

The mission of the Rosendale Theatre Collective (RTC) is to preserve the Rosendale Theatre, a historic Main Street anchor business crucial to the economic stability of downtown Rosendale, New York, and the cultural life of Rosendale and Ulster County residents through a multidisciplinary approach of arts and education programming, thereby raising the quality of life in our diverse community.

In order to ensure the long-term success of the theatre as a cultural epicenter for Rosendale and the surrounding region, the RTC will execute a robust and multifaceted business plan to accomplish the following outcomes:

Facilitation of a responsible and sustainable restoration, preservation, and enhancement of the theatre;

Support of and service to a diverse group of constituents, including independent and mainstream filmmakers, emerging and established artists, students and educators, and community arts organizations working in multiple genres, all in an inclusive, diverse, vibrant, and welcoming atmosphere; and

Cultivation of diverse revenue streams through development and fundraising strategies.

The Rosendale Theater Collective (RTC) provides a dynamic forum for presenting and producing world-class films and performance, arts, and education programs. With an emphasis on supporting local and regional artists, RTC works together with other arts organizations to sustain diverse cultural activities and exchanges for a wide audience, enhancing the economic and business development in our community.


the Rosendale Theatre Collective is a group of local area residents and business owners from all walks of life, including some famous actors, screenwriters, and directors who all rallied together to form the Rosendale Theatre Collective.

The Collective was formed to save the landmark theater from being torn down or sold to developers that wouldn't anchor the town or provide a cultural center as the theater had for the last 61 years.

Today the runs movies, hosts artists and provides a cultrual hub to Rosendale and surrounding areas, including hosting the Woodstock Film festival each fall, all through the work of dedicated volunteers!
