Strand Theater

The Strand Theater had the distinction of being the first theater in Northern Kentucky to show an "all talking" film. A May 14, 1929 announcement in the Kentucky Post stated that the film "In Old Arizona" would be shown for the whole week.

By 1950 it was operated by Mid-States Theaters Inc. The Strand Theater was closed on May 31, 1952 with Maria Montez in “Sudan” & Marlene Dietrich in “The Flame of New Orleans”.
