A brief item in the October 25, 1929, issue of Motion Picture News said that Jimmy Chest, operator of the Capitol Theatre in Canajoharie, had decided to keep the house open only two nights a week during the fall. A later issue of the same magazine said that the second theater in Canajoharie, the Strand, had been closed.

The Strand was still operating in 1930, though, when the October 11 issue of Exhibitors Herald World reported that Jack Vasil had opened the new Strand Theatre. He had promised to build the new theater if Canajoharie repealed its law against movies being shown on Sunday.

The September 14, 1940 issue of BoxOffice shows the interior remodeled by the Wood Conversion Company. Fairly plain look.
