News About This Theater
I don’t know anything about the history of this theatre except that it is an old downtown theatre. It was originally operating as the Opera House by 1914, and was operating as the Strand Theatre from at least 1926 when it had 1,000 seats. The Strand Theatre suffered damage from a fire on September 23, 1933. It was later reopened and by 1950 had been renamed Berwick Theatre, operated by William Goldman Theaters Inc. It operated thru to at least 1957 with a seating capacity of 800. it’s in good shape, medium sized, long and narrow, sloped floor, balcony, a few Art Deco style architectural features, fun to go there and watch movies.
I brought my kid to see “Shark Boy and Lava Girl” in 3D. The place was full of kids. I felt like I was in a time warp. They should show “The Creature From The Black Lagoon” in 3D. I bet the Berwick crowd would appreciate it.—–Maybe someone who knows more about the history of this theatre could add something.
