Map marker is off by two blocks. I think this is where the Water Department building is now.

The Strand might have been the successor of the Dunlap Theatre, which was listed in Julius Cahn’s guides for 1906-1907 and 1913-1914. The September 12, 1936, issue of The Film Daily reported that the Dunlap Theatre in Clarksville was being rebuilt and refurnished after having been damaged by a fire about two months previously. The Cahn guides listed the Dunlap as a ground-floor house of 750 seats, so it was about the same size as the Strand. I haven’t found any mentions of the Dunlap Theatre dating from later than 1936.
