Roland Theater

Built in 1906, the New Roland Theater lasted until the Orpheum Theatre put it out of business in 1922. In that year, it was renamed Strand Theater and in 1928 the building was taken over by a dairy, according to the Marion Illinois History Preservation website. The theater was run by Edgar E. Clark.

The 1909-1910 edition of Cahn’s guide lists the New Roland Theatre with 1,034 seats, but fails to mention if it is a ground floor house. It had a stage 65x25 feet with a 32x20 foot opening. C.F. Roland was the owner and manager.
