There is a nice picture of the Strand, ca 1930, on page 26 of “Images of America: Freehold”. The caption states that the Strand burned down on April 7, 1962 along with nine stores.

On page 123 of “Images of America: Freehold Volume II” there is a picture of the Strand in the background of a 1953 parade. The marquee is curved, unlike the aforementioned photo that has a vertical marquee. The curved marquee also reads “A Walter Reade Theatre”.

From Boxoffice magazine, April 1950:

Tony Hunting, manager of the Strand, Freehold NJ, offered a Saturday morning showing of “Cinderella”. He made arrangements with the local school bus service to pick up all youngsters along the regular routes and bring them to the Strand.
