The Strand Theater was built by the Tod Hotel people for the entertainment of their guests. As can be seen above, it was a small house, and from what I saw of it the one time I was there, it wasn’t a memorable experience.

The projection could only be reached by a ladder, and was small.

It was a third run house whose main fare was cowboy movies and B pictures.

In the 1960’s it switched to art pictures and some live burlisque and finally closed after the projectionists/stage hands struck the theater the primary issue being safety.

It’s small lobby was non-discript as was the auditorium.

I have a photo of the front of the theater that I’ll put up on my web site:

Please e-mail me at that site to let me know you saw it as I can’t leave it up there for too long since that’s not the purpose of the site.

You will find it on Page 2 of the site

Have a great day.
