I went to this Wometco theatre and the former one located on 441 just south of Hollywood Blvd. as a kid all the time. The theatre was actually located on the west side of Park Road, which runs North/South just west of the Hollywood Mall. Currently a Taco Bell and a mini strip mall reside where the Florida Twin used to be. If anybody has pics, I’d love to see them.
Thank God I’ve found this page. On an alternate route to work I’ve passed the Strand Theatre many times and I’ve found it so difficult to find any information about it online. Interestingly, it’s listed here as the Sun Theatre yet the sign at the building still says Strand. Does anybody know when it was last open as a movie house?
I’d like to take a few pictures of it soon, even though it’s been lacking in maintenence for decades.
Does anybody know anything about a former Strand Theatre in Miami?
One morning while communting from my home in Hollywood down to my job in Coral Gables, I decided to avoid the terrible traffic on I-95 and find some avenue that ran parallel to the interstate. And somewhere between NW 29th Street and NW 14th Street along NW 7th Avenue I found a small theatre with a marquee and classic double doors. It was labeled the STRAND with the S having fallen off some time ago. It currently seems to be a small church/prayer home now. I will try to take some pictures of it. Can anybody here identify what part of town/neighborhood we would call this area? It’s definitely industrial and very poor. Perhaps that might help with some research (where I’m finding NO luck).
