The Strand Theatre was among one of the first African-American theatres built in Atlanta during the era of segregation. The Strand was part of the Bailey theatre circuit whose other venues in Atlanta included the Eighty One, also on Decatur Street, the Harlem on McDaniel, and the Royal on Auburn Avenue.
Most had closed by the mid 1960s and few, if any of these buildings remain. I think that the Royal became a nightclub in the 1970s but can’t say for sure. Would appreciate any addition information on any of these theatres.
