New York’s Strand Theater

Wonderful site! Enjoying all comments & news!
I have a special interest in the (now demolished) Strand Theater in NYC. My grandmother I never knew was the organist & orchestra leader there in the era of silent movies.
I have her ivory baton, dark hair, jowls, & odd sense of humor (I’ve been told). I also have small black/white pictures of her dancing Isadora Duncan-style with her flapper friends in the countryside.
Could anyone direct me to possible brochures, flyers or ads from the Strand during that era? I would greatly appreciate it.

Programs, brochures and flyers turn up on eBay very often on the Strand Theatre, NYC.
Thank you, William. Good ol' eBay. This Texan appreciates your help. ~ Bess' Girl
