One of several now demolished showplaces in the Brownsville area. The Strand Theater opened in 1915 and underwent some renovation in the late-1940’s.

It closed in 1953 and was demolished in 1960.

This theater may have lasted longer than 1960, unless there were two Strands in Brownsville. The 1963 IMPA shows the theater as part of the Laskey Amusement Corp. The theater is no longer listed in the 1967 IMPA.

The picture is incorrect – the Strand was located on Market Street. It was open in the early 1950’s but closed for repairs. After it re-opened, it was only open for a short while and abruptly closed. Some say it was the result of structural problems. Nice theater which showed recent films. The building is now demolished.
