I have recently learned my late grandfather was part owner of this theatre until it was demolished.

George Curtis and his wife, Kate, are my maternal great grandparents. I have more information on “The Happy Hour” and George and Kate’s longtime businesses in the entertainment industry.

Jeff Bertsch I am very pleased that there is still knowledge of the Strand Theater.My greatgrandfather,George Curtis,opened the Strand. My grandmother(Jenny[Curtis]Bertsch) owned the Strand with her two sisters until it was sold in the 1950’s and lamentably became a parking lot. I note that mike plugh above is also a relative of George Curtis.I would like to communicate with him (Jeff )

If you are unable to access the photos at the above link, click “New Search” and enter “Strand.” You will find 2 photos. A further search of St. Paul Street may turn up several more photos of the theater in the background, including one as “The Happy Hour.”
