The Rockford Theatre In North Dakota Is Still Showing Movies After 100 Years Of Cinema
One thing that surprises people visiting quite a few North Dakota small towns is the presence of movie theaters. It can be hard to find a movie theater even in newer towns and small cities – often, you have to go to the next closest “big” city to find one. But for a handful of little historic towns throughout the prairie, there’s a theater right on Main Street that’s been there for decades. New Rockford is one of those towns. They have one of the historic theaters in North Dakota that have been around since a century ago, and you can still see the latest films there.
