<<< Decades later, in an attempt to lure away audiences from television, a vast curved screen was installed, and the Strand Theatre became New Orleans' first movie house to screen films in the “Todd A-O” process for several years. >>>

This is correct except that at that time the theater was called the Panorama.

In 1937, Joy Houck leased the Strand Theatre and operated it until it closed in 1958. At this time, he re-named the theatre Joy Strand. I remember my father telling me that this was a popular spot for kids to go while playing hookie from school. Here’s a photo of the Joy Strand:
