News About This Theater
- Nov 18, 2009 — Happy 50th, "Ben-Hur"
The Strand Theater was closed and partially demolished in 1990, with the rest of the building coming down in 1996, and the marquee was given to the Wisconsin State Historical Society. An office building is at this location now.
The Strand Theater was built in 1917 and opened in 1918. It was designed by architectural firm Rapp & Rapp. A 4-manual, 11 rank Wurlitzer organ (Op. 1520) was installed at the Strand Theater in 1926 and removed to a church in 1942. The organ has since been combined with another instrument and is now owned by the Theatre Organ Society of San Diego.
