Strand Theater

The Strand Theater opened on March 8, 1920 with Jack Pickford in “The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come” plus 5 acts of vaudeville. Seating was provided for 1,600 in orchestra, balcony and boxes. It is featured in the special features section of the DVD of “Deep Throat”, where that feature movie debuted. The sign on the facade in the movie said Strand Riviera but the Riviera Theatre is a separate theatre next door.

The Strand Theater was last used as a restaurant which had closed by 2018.

Jim, that sure is great news!

See my post on the Riviera/Stone Opera House. The photo of the inside is incredible. It’s from the book I mentioned.

The winning bid for the theater was $22,000 by a real estate firm. There is no indication of what the new owner intends: View link

Neither theater is being renovated at this time, nor does there seem to be any current intentions.
