**correction….the Strand and the Arabian were actually two different theatres….they were just a couple blocks apart

**the Arabian opened in 1927 and the two were in competition for just a couple years before the owners of the Arabian bought the Strand as well

**the Strand was demolished in the late 1970s, the Arabian is now the home for the local community group Laurel Little Theatre

The Strand was part of the Royal Theaters circuit in the early 1960s. President was A.L. Royal.
