Updated website for Fox Pavilion is:
would love to go in there and see what is left of the theater itself….
I am pretty sure the Strand was operating in the mid to late 50s – I remember going to see second run movies when my father ran the Fox Theater – I had to be at least 8 or 9 – born in 1949 so, logic would say it was at least open in mid 50s – It was very run down by that time – The building still stands but what is left of the original theater is anybody’s guess.
That picture of the Liberty Theater is very close to the old Strand Theater location that was closed sometime in the 1960’s.
The Strand theater was owned by some company that owned the Fox Theater in 1950 – Continued operating into the late 50s early 60s before closing – It was renovated into a clothing store and building still stands – suspect that elements of the Strand are still there behind the renovation – To see the inside of the Fox after renovate just go to their website:
The Fox Theater is now the Fox Pavilion – Renovated and absolutely Gorgeous – New owners have been true to the concept of the original Art Deco look, preserving much of the artwork and structure while converting it to an multi purpose reception and theater venue – Can view the theater at its new website:
