Originally opened for the Saenger circuit, the Strand Theatre was given a new Art Deco style marquee in the 1930’s, replacing its original more simple one.

The Strand Theatre was demolished in the 1970’s.

A Kilgen theater organ opus 3742 size 2/6 style U015 was installed in the Strand (Arabian) Theater in 1926 at a cost of $6,950.00.

**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.
