The Bijou Theatre launched in 1911 in downtown Greenfield likely on a ten-year lease. The venue became the Strand Theatre under new ownership on October 8, 1921 when C.B. “Curley” Hudson bough the Bijou from Smith and Howard. The theatre converted to disc-based sound in 1929. An improved sound system and interior renovation in 1931 led to the venue being marketed as the “New” Strand Theatre from 1931 to 1934 before reverting to the Strand Theatre.

Hudson sold the theatre to Crump Taylor on June 1, 1938 ending the Strand’s run. Taylor also bought the Wilson Theatre. The Strand and Wilson were merged into a single location in the Community Building with the operation called the Plaza Theatre which operated until fire destroyed the building in 1978.
