A card in the California Index indicates that the Strand was located in the Oxnard Masonic Temple. It cites an April 14, 1933, Southwest Builder & Contractor item saying “Claude A. Spaeth, manager of the Strand Theatre, Oxnard, is having plans prepared for remodeling the theater on the ground floor of the Masonic Temple Building.” The cornerstone of the Masonic Temple was laid in 1901, according to a Los Angeles Times item of January 17 that year.

According to “The Encyclopedia of the American Theatre Organ” by David L. Junchen, pg. 628,

an “unidentified theatre” in Oxnard had a two manual, three rank Smith theatre pipe organ installed at some point.

No date or other details are given in the book.

Looking through the pages for various Oxnard theatres in this website, it seems possible that the Aztec Theatre, or the Strand Theatre, could have been a home to this instrument at one point, since Smith installed most of their organs between about 1916 and 1926. Does anybody know more?
