The Strand opened in 1914, located on Lincoln Avenue near Southport and Wellington Avenues in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. By the 40s, the theater had been renamed the City Theater, which operated into the 60s. Today, the building houses a carpeting store.

This building still retains its original, operational stud lighting on the facade, which makes it somewhat unique.
