ROCKLAND, ME — The Maine Attorney General’s office has filed an antitrust suit against Flagship Cinemas, the present owners of Rockland’s long-closed Strand Theatre, according to a report in the Village Soup.
The suit charges that Flagship, which purchased the Strand in 2001 with promises of restoration, has kept the theater closed as a means of preventing competitors from using the theater. As a remedy, Maine’s Attorney General is seeking to force Flagship to sell the Strand to an independent third-party.
What other theaters does FLAGSHIP operate in the Rockland area?
Any info on the new owner? Hopefully it will be restored
Here’s a link to their website, LarryS:
Whatever happened. Was this theatre sold or is it still for sale? I am looking for a theatre in maine to own and operate.
