The September 12, 1925, issue of Motion Picture News reported that the Strand Theatre, 422 Main Street in Parkersburg, West Virginia, had been “…practically demolished by fire….” with a loss of $50,000. It took several months to rebuild the theater. The recent opening of the Strand was noted in the February 21, 1926, issue of The Film Daily.

The July 15, 1931, issue of The Film Daily said that Publix had taken over operation of the Strand from P. W. Barrett. Barrett stayed on as manager. The July 17 issue said that the Strand was being remodeled.
