Seymour’s Strand Theater needs a helping hand

SEYMOUR, CT — The Strand has been lighting up Main Street in Seymour for many decades, but the old girl is beginning to look a little shabby. The townspeople are looking for low and no cost ways to spruce up this treasure, one of the increasingly few single screen theaters operating in America today. In addition to film, the theater also hosts live performances.

“Starting on the outside of the building, the marquee is starting to fall apart,” Simpson noted. “The paint is peeling, birds are nesting in the fallen ceiling panels and it continues to leak even a day or two after the rains have stopped.”

Simpson said the marquee is one of only a few left in the country, and the theater itself is one of last few single screen movie houses in Connecticut.
