I visited the booth around 1971, or 72. Al Greenwood was the operator. When he did a change over, the sound change was large wall mounted dial called a fader. It was made by Western Electric.

Super Simplex / Peerless Magnarcs.

The Strand Movie theater was leased, run and operated by George R Perry and Perry Management. It was operated by him in the 70s at the time when the casinos were first opened. It was later sold by the owner (believe to be Charles Tannenbaum to the casino industry).

In the late 60’s and 70’s it was run by Apollo Circuit Theaters. When Frank theaters purchased the chain they did not get the Strand. In 1974 the named was changed to Talkies and showed old classics. In 1975 it was run by a gentlemen named Lero from Phila and changed back to the Strand. They ran The Towering Inferno all summer with a Fri and Sat midnight showing of the Divine flick Pink Flamingos. IN 1976 the theater changed hands again and operated until the late 80’s.
