Built for Harry Crandall, who operated several theaters in Washington, DC, the Strand Theatre was opened on September 3, 1920. In 1925, Crandall sold his theaters to the Stanley circuit, and the house eventually passed into the control of the Schine circuit.

The Strand Theatre was the last operating theater in Cumberland when it showed its final movie in September, 1972, 52 years after it opened. The building has since been demolished.
