The Strand Theater was owned by Alver Gill and was the first successful movie theater in Honey Grove. It operated in the 1920’s and 1930’s and was housed in a building just north of the Signal-Citizen building. Edna Lee Braudrick was the Strand ticket girl for 11 years. Mr Gill sold the Strand Theater to Bob Lilley, John Donald and Doug Mitchell, who later sold it to the Killough family. The Strand closed in 1943 but would open the rare ocassions when the new "State Theater was over crowded.
