This was the first Strand Theater in Buffalo. It was operated by Mitchel and Moe Mark, who also operated the Strand Theater in New York City. First run films came from Paramount. In its day, it was a premier theater in the area. The Marks also ran the Elmwood Theater and Victoria Theater in the city.
As newer movie palaces opened up the street in the early-1920’s, the Strand’s time ran out, and it closed in 1923, with the auditorium being demolished. Shortly afterward, a new Strand Theater opened in South Buffalo.
The former entrance to the old Stand Theater was remodeled, finally becoming a clothing store. That was torn down in 1956.
