On November 6, 1915, the Strand is advertising the motion picture, “Neal of the Navy”, so the Strand was certainly operating in 1915.

As Joe already posted, the Strand was formerly the Yale Theatre. In 1910 and probably even earlier, the Strand/Yale Theatre was known as the Empire Theatre. An October 6, 1912 ad for the Yale Theatre, states “Formerly the Empire”.
An item in the June 16, 1915 edition of the Tulsa Daily World states that the Yale Theatre is closed and will re-open on June 25th with a new name. That is most likely when the name was changed to Strand. The Strand is advertising motion pictures in July of 1915. All three theatre names had an address of 117 South Main Street. The Strand Theatre is listed in the 1949 Film Daily Yearbook with 320 seats.
