so the strand in dorchester was built in 1918 and is a 1400 seat house, the stage was used mostly for vaudevulle untill it was closed in the 1950s, it sat closed filling with squaters and pigoens for almost 20 years. The space was partially renovated in the 70s, poorly unfortunatly losing many of the tresurse that were inside it including the massive chandaliers. The building is still in poor condition and having just lost it managing company, is being run by the city. The building is beautifull and if it were to be lifted out of hte ground and redeposited down town it would be a premier space in this city. Alas there is no money to renovate the space properly.
