Located in the main business district the Strand Theatre opened in 1934. Seating was listed at 697. No information on owners/operators.

The theatre closed in the late-1970’s and has since been demolished. Any further information on the Strand Theatre would be appreciated.

All theaters in the 40s and 50s were owned by Mack Jackson. When I worked projectors at the Pines Drive In in the late 60s Lane Hebson owned the Pines Drive In and the Strand. Another theater not mentioned is the Bama Theater. We saved Merita Bread wrappers to see The Lone Ranger at the Bama on Saturday mornings. The Rex Theater in Northside serveed the black community.

In the street view if you were to turn riht at the cream colored building with brown awnings the rear of the strand would be one block down.

The Strand did not close in 1958. I was born in 1970. I remember vividly going to The Strand many times. Awesome place….wish it was still around so my kids could enjoy the theatre like I did as a kid.
