Strand Theatre (1930)

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Strand Theatre was opened May 15, 1917. In 1926, its owner, M.G. Kirkman, opened another theater, called the Muriel Theatre, across the street.

The Strand Theatre is mentioned in the 1951 20th Century-Fox consent decree, and may have been under Fox operation at that time. The theater was probably closed sometime in the early-1950’s.

The building was converted to retail space, and was for a while the location of a Goodwill Store. As of March, 2009, it is vacant.
