Lost Memory commented about Strand Theatre on Mar 30, 2014 at 5:19 pm

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.

A 1922-23 Bloomsburg street and business directory lists a Victoria Theatre at 47 East Main Street. Was the Victoria Theatre an earlier theatre at this location before the Capitol Theatre was built?

Lost Memory commented about Folly Theatre on Mar 27, 2014 at 9:18 am

This theatre should have a previous name of Pastime Theatre. The Pastime Theatre was remodeled and opened as the Folly Theatre in December of 1917.

Published in the Drumright Evening Derrick on December 21, 1917.

The Folly theater, formerly the Pastime, under the management of Harry LeVan, acting for the Barbour agency, has undergone complete remodeling and now has the appearance of an up to date theater. A new floor has been laid, the ceiling newly plastered, seats rearranged, new scenery installed and the building well heated.

The Folly will be run strictly as a tab theater, although good pictures will be shown in connection with the shows. Jewell’s Golden Jubilee company will play a week’s engagement at the Folly, with a complete change of program each day.
