But Which Strand?

posted by Patrick Crowley on February 25, 2004 at 8:11 am

Joanne Asala asks…
“Hi, I recently purchased an old photo at an antique shop of a theater called "The Strand.” Although I got it in Wichita, Kansas I’m not sure if it’s a Kansas theater. The photo was taken in 1941, based on the movies listed. I thought you’d like a copy of it with the hopes of identifying it someday. Thank you!"

Any guesses? (Hint: Cinema Treasures lists 60 “Strands”.)

I know this isn’t the “Strand” you’re looking for. But, I couldn’t help but notice how similar they look. This is the Strand in Georgetown, South Carolina and it’s still in use as a community theater.
