“Rivest266,” instead of “correcting” and “improving” the posted images of others, you should take some time to learn how to activate links. It’s quite easy!

Their new website is at http://plattsburgharts.org/Strand.html

It has a good photo gallery – and looks like theylve began major renovations and are closed during this.

Cinema Centers ran this theatre in the 70’s to early 80’s until they opened the new theatre in the mall. They also ran the theatre near the air force base and the old mall theatre.

The legendary theatre organist Billy Nalle recorded several songs on the Strand’s Wuritzer for the Reader’s Digest set, “The Might Pipe Organ Plays Golden Favorites” which was released in 1979. His version of the Parade of the Wooden Soldiers on disc 2 showcased the many percussion capabilities of this instrument.

Back in the mid-late 1960s, the Dick Weber family installed a large 3 manual 20 rank Wurlitzer in the Strand. The organ was Wurlitzer opus 1196, a style 260 special (plus additions). This was not the Strand’s original organ. This organ, along with the Dick Weber family, was featured in an issue of Theatre Organ Bombarde journal circa 1967.

The family eventually moved the organ to a pizza parlor in Marietta, GA around 1977. It did not last long and the business and organ were scattered to the winds. I have no idea what became of the organ.

June 10 and 11th, 2005—come one, come all to the re-birth of the historic Strand Theatre with four performances of the musical “You’re Good Man, Charlie Brown”-the first musical in the Strand in over 30 years. This is the first step on the Strand’s journey to be restored to its rightful glory. For more information, contact Benjamin Pomerance at 563-1744 or Ron Pomerance at 562-3475.
