Baltimore Strand Theatre

Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

There is almost nothing known about the Baltimore Strand Theatre aside from the facts that it was on Long Avenue and was the forerunner to the State Theatre, also built and operated by the Baltimore family, (now the New Castle Playhouse) further along the Long Avenue shopping district. I assume it was a small nickelodeon. It never made it into the sound era.

I did research on the Silent movie houses in Augusta,Ga.I was amazed at how many we had in those days,Baltimore,being much larger I bet had quite a few silent movie theatres.Some you may never know about unless you really hit the books and research it.Hope you find more Jack!

Thanks, I used to know many “old-timers” stage hands and projectionis and managers. I loved to hear their shoe biz stories.

There is only one projectionist living in Augusta from the carbon-arc and changeover days,he has been so helpful in the history of the theatres and Drive-ins here in Augusta,Ga. and Aiken,S.C. that I have been able to get on CT. I guess I wouldn’t be a old-timer manager working in the business from 1974 to 84 from Doorman to management,but boy i have stories.sadly alot can’t go on CT.take care.
