Originally opened as the Orpheum Theatre prior to 1908, and then renamed Palace Theatre. The Strand Theatre, located on State Street, is notable for being the first Schenectady movie house to screen a “talking picture”, Al Jolson’s “The Jazz Singer” in December of 1927. The Strand Theatre is listed as open with seating for 1,300 in the 1929 Film Daily Yearbook. It seems to have closed in 1929 when the former 950-seat Barcli Theatre was renamed New Strand Theatre on August 31, 1929.
The Strand Theatre had re-opened by 1931, then closed again in 1932, reopening in 1933 and was still open in 1943.
