The Strand in Newburyport was the subject of a lengthy article in a newspaper or magazine some 10 years or so ago, with nice color photos of the restored exterior and photos and explanation of how the interior had been converted to commercial space. It’s right downtown, but I don’t know anything about it. But it looks great.

In the 1942-43 edition of the Motion Picture Almanac, the Strand Theatre and the Premier Theatre in Newburyport MA are listed as operated by Warner Brothers Circuit Management of New York. So this theater was a Warner house at that time.

Seems like the Function should be changed from ‘Unknown’ to ‘Office Space’.

According to the Massachusetts Historical Commission, the Strand Theater actually closed in 1959. For many years after it closed, the building served as Newburyport’s unemployment office.
