Listed as part of the Liggett-Florin Booking Service chain (who bought the Stiefel Booking Office chain in the late ‘40s), operating from around 1950-52 (could be earlier).

The current location of the address given is obviously not the building in question (Hacienda De Don Manuel restaurant), so either the building was demoed, the address is wrong, or the street addresses were changed at some point. I suspect the Strand was in fact Hines Playhouse, located at 92-96 Lafayette Ave., across the street and down the block from the Lafayette.

It’s been years since I’ve gone through the Rockland papers, but as I recall, the Strand booked “family friendly” programming in competition with the Lafayette.

The theatre was located where the parking lot for the little strip mall on Lafayette avenue is now. There is a picture of this theatre on display in the hardware store on Lafayette avenue. I have never seen a photo online.
