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