Richard is right, the address is 20 Third St (the street isn’t long enough to have 290 buildings/lots). I used to live a couple of blocks away from this theater for my whole childhood, and lived in the Dover area for over 35 years.

This theater has remained preserved, while renovating enough to stay semi-modern with the Dolby sound and upgraded to 3 screens (2 are in the old balcony). Granted the balcony seats are small but I’d rather see them small than this theater get torn down or redone into another restaurant or office space.

Speaking of restaurants, Jake’s shown in the photo is an awesome breakfast nook if it’s still there…and the Asia Chinese restaurant 2 doors down is a must visit. Dover is an awesome old town (incorporated back in the 1770’s…but settled well before then) but still modern. With a population of over 25,000 in the tax free state of New Hampshire, I’m positive that your visit to the theater and almost anywhere in the state will make this a favorite to everyone. Beaches, mountains, lakes and the large cities of Boston are all within an hour drive from Dover.

Enjoy the films at the Strand, I still remember seeing my first film there — Grease!
