Strand and Europa Theaters in New Brunswick
NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ — By the mid-1940’s, the Strand had become pretty seedy. We kids sometimes went there for the Saturday 9-cent double bills—usually cowboy films, as I remember.
In the late 1940’s, the Europa Theatre in the Hungarian residential district of New Brunswick already seemed to have become an “art house.” As a young student, I saw Olivier’s Henry V there. This was for the time pretty exotic film fare for New Brunswick.
