It was closed for a bit and then in the early 90s (I think!) it was updated with a new sound system and opened for business. You can see the old movie projector in the lobby and popcorn boxes waiting for you... More

The strand is closed while they are doing renovations will open soon the sign out front says. They are upgrading so they can show movies in digital format which is the industry normal right now.

This is the official meeting place in the town where summer families and local natives meet to enjoy some of the latest film releases. Its a classic theatre that always draws crowds. As they go digital, maybe they''ll... More

This was such a great experience and fun place to see a summer movie on a rainy day/night. Would recommend getting your tickets and seats early especially if the weather is rainy

Great Shakespearian adventure. Actors worked hard and pulled off an exciting Tempest experience. We enjoyed the experience in the historic Strand Theaters new stage. A decent crowd and once the word is out I am sure they will act to a full house.

A piece of the past but playing the movies we want to see today. Great archetecture and preserved details inside. Worth a ticket just to see the wallpaper.

I have been going to the Strand on and off for many years. IT IS AN INSTTUTION with great memories. Recently I heard the theatre may have to close as new movies are made digitaly which requires very expensive new equipment. I hope someone will start a fund to keep the grad old Strand operating.
