The Strand Theatre was opened on December 19, 1917. By 1929 it was part of the T & D Jr. Enterprises chain. Still open as part of that chain in 1943, it had gone from listings by 1950.

The June 28, 1929 issue of the San Francisco Examiner celebrating the opening of the San Francisco Fox Theater states (on page 5) Herman Kersken, who managed the Strand Theater in Grass Valley, had been chosen to manage the Fox Theater in San Francisco.

“Contrasted sharply with his present position was Kersken’s first position as manager. It was at the obscure Strand Theater in Grass Valley. In the heart of the Mother Lode country, Grass Valley has only one principal street and Kersken’s only competition was the village minister.”

This suggests the Strand Theater was open prior to 1929 and could have had a location on Main Street.
