There might have been. I did an extensive search a the Lewis County library and one of the staff mentioned that she had some recollection of there being a Strand which preceded the one built in 1947, but was unable to locate any information on it.

I went back through my notes and noticed that there is a distinguishable different in the photos of the Strand. Here is an undated photo of the Strand on Park Avenue. Another posting has been made in Cinema Treasures regarding the Strand on Third Street.

CORRECTION: There were three Strand Theatres, all were under the proprietorship of Mr. Earnest Pollock. The first opened in 1938, the second in or around 1943 and the last in 1947. Lewis County has been without a theatre since 1963.
