Located at 112 W. Main Street in downtown Oklahoma City, the Olympic Theatre opened in November 1908. It was renamed Strand Theatre from May 19, 1915, as a five cent cinema, but on rare occasions management would add to the program a vaudeville act or two.
On October 28, 1917, the Strand Theatre changed directions when it switched over to the staging of Grand Opera, at substantially higher prices. By March, 1918, the Strand Theatre had gone back to showing motion pictures, and remained a twenty cents a seat movie theatre until it closed in February 1920. During sweltering summer months the Strand Theatre advertisements had stressed that the interior provided mechanically chilled air, “cool breezes bathe your body in pure comfort”.
From 1920 until 1967, the building was used as retail space. At that time, it was reopened as the Mondo Adult Theatre and on April 12, 1968 became the Academy X Cinema. It was closed and demolished in 1971.
